Finlay McKay

Finlay is trusted by his clients to give them practical advice on employment law and HR issues ranging from dismissals and grievances to reviewing and drafting contractual documentation and policies in addition to advising on trade union matters. Finlay is equally at home representing clients at Employment Tribunals where he has significant experience of successfully defending claims of discrimination for public sector clients, as well as more routine unfair dismissal claims. He is a tenacious litigator whose no-nonsense style gets to the root of complex matters, allowing him to present complex cases in a straightforward and comprehensible manner. 

While he thrives on representing clients in Tribunal, assisting clients in avoiding tribunals is also a major piece of Finlay's armoury.  His experience of the public sector means Finlay is live to the budgetary and reputational issues that will be important to public sector clients.
