Andrea, an employment and regulatory lawyer, advises on both Hong Kong and English law. She has extensive experience in high profile, complex litigation, including multi-jurisdictional disputes.

Working closely with Senior Partner Nick Gall, as head of the employment practice, Andrea undertakes all types of Employment Law work on behalf of both companies and individuals, and advises clients on claims for breach of contract, wrongful termination, unlawful dismissal, discrimination, whistleblowing and bonus disputes. She also negotiates and manages post termination restrictive covenants and team moves. On the non-contentious side, Andrea regularly advises on, and drafts, employment contracts, staff handbooks, bonuses and Long Term Incentive Plan (LTIP) clauses, restrictive covenants and separation (compromise) agreements.

The Regulatory aspects to Andrea’s practice include representing individuals and companies who are the subject of internal and/or external regulators’ investigations. She works closely with Hong Kong and foreign regulators in the financial and insurance industries.

Her promotion, with effect from May 3rd, brings the total number of Gall partners to five and further enhances the firm’s reputation as a leading independent dispute resolution and employment law practice in Asia.

 

Senior Partner Nick Gall comments:

“Employment law remains an important string to our bow. Additionally, we are seeing an increasing number of regulated clients need support on challenging regulatory issues and investigations. Andrea’s promotion reflects on the scope and quality of her work for a range of clients and helps us build out the employment practice. The expansion in these practices is driven by client demand, and we anticipate further hires in due course. We are delighted to welcome Andrea to the partnership.”
