Michael Scutt

Partner and Head of Department

I joined Crane & Staples in 2013 as Head of Employment and Dispute Resolution and was appointed as a Partner in April 2016.

I advise both businesses and individuals on all aspects of employment law and HR support including;

  • Drafting business documents, including contracts of employment, staff handbooks, policies and agreements
  • Drafting and advising on Settlement Agreements
  • Advising on redundancy and dismissal processes, including disciplinary and grievance procedures and protected conversations
  • Protecting business assets, such as confidential information and business contacts
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Representation in Employment Tribunal and Court cases

I also advise and act for clients in contentious probate/Inheritance Act claims,  and debt recovery.

I head up a dedicated team that gives clear and practical legal advice with a minimum of jargon. We are committed to trying to resolve disputes in a fair and business-like manner, using mediation where possible.

 

 

Outside the office

Away from work I like cycling and running, as well as supporting Arsenal.

I would like to thank you and your colleagues for the help and support you gave me which was first class.  Thanks once again Michael
