London

Raymond heads our employment team in the London office which includes immigration advice. Recognised by the Legal 500, Raymond advises a stellar list of private and public sector clients, including brands within the world’s largest luxury goods group, international fashion brands (in particular ones based in France with UK operations), insurers, financial services, professional services employers, membership organisations, arm’s length, non-departmental, and other public sector bodies.      

He previously worked in house for a major UK group of companies comprising an international business focused mainly on food products and services. Raymond has therefore experienced life as a solicitor and as a client which has provided him with invaluable insight into understanding what clients require from their solicitor.   

Raymond is joint head of the Employment Practices Group in Pangea Net, an international network of law firms Browne Jacobson co-founded. 

He advises, mostly employers, on every aspect of employment law, including complex disciplinaries, grievances and claims, reorganisations, relocations, and senior executive exits.     

Raymond leads on modern slavery issues, in particular by advising on modern slavery statements. 

He frequently publishes articles on employment law and modern slavery subjects in professional and other publications.
