David Ludlow

I head up the Employment Law team (Businesses and Individuals).

I enjoy advising and representing a wide range of businesses, charities, schools and private individuals on the full range of employment law and related legal issues. I thrive in helping businesses resolve general issues in relation to Employment Law as well as boardroom and shareholder disputes and employee competition litigation. I have considerable experience in NHS Primary care employment and partnership disputes and also in Secondary care I advise consultants on their terms and conditions.

I am a member of the Employment Lawyers Association and am also a Legal Adviser to The Employment Agency Movement.

I have been listed regularly in the main independent legal directories, namely Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 where I have been referred to as “practical and reasonable”, “well regarded” and a “solid practitioner” in recent years. I have been highlighted in Chambers & Partners as a ‘leading individual’ in the field of Employment Law.

Outside of the work I am a Trustee of Horsell Common Preservation Society and a member at Woking & Horsell Cricket Club and Woking Hockey club where my sons are active participants.
