In my work as a commercial litigator in a City of London law firm, much of my time was spent sorting out corporate deals which had led to difficulties of one sort or another. A regular source of work was around director level employment contracts, share options, earnout provisions, deferred consideration, restrictive covenants etc.

As a mediator those disputes have figured strongly in my practice, particularly as mentioned in the sections relating to Deal Medation, Mergers and Acquisitions, Partnership etc and Commercial Contracts.

Charles Middleton-Smith is widely experienced in Employment cases. Below are examples of some recent engagements in this area:

  • Director employment dispute in well-known record company
  • Employment as relevant to mergers and acquisitions, shareholder, partnership, family business
