Angus Menzies

Gunnercooke - a very different law firm

Angus has over 20 years’ experience of advising employers on their people strategies. He acts for organisations of various shape and size from smaller owner-managed businesses to large plcs and multinational groups and he also advises individuals on their employment rights and issues. In recent years, Angus has developed a particular interest and expertise in assisting businesses operating in the “Gig Economy”.

As well as assisting clients with discrimination claims and allegations, and with day to day employment issues such as discipline and grievances, absence management, holiday and working time matters, Angus has considerable experience in advising on changing terms and conditions of employment and the people-related aspects of group reorganisations, business transfers and outsourcing projects, many of which have had an international context. He is therefore comfortable providing UK redundancy and TUPE advice whilst coordinating the relevant employment input from other jurisdictions where necessary. Angus particularly enjoys working with foreign-owned (especially US and French) businesses who engage staff in the UK, helping them grapple with the peculiarities of English employment law.

Angus is known for his no-nonsense approach and can-do attitude. One of Angus’ key aims is to help reduce the amount of unnecessary time and expense businesses spend on employee issues, enabling HR to focus more on strategies that will maximise the employee experience (and usually therefore the customer/client experience) and contribute more to the growth of the business. He is generally in favour of HR involvement at Board level and seeks to help HR practitioners to make a case for this. Having previously set up an Employment law team within a multidisciplinary practice, Angus understands how the requirements of tax, pensions, reward and social security sometimes compete with HR and employment law demands, necessitating cooperation between specialists to create practical solutions for clients.
