Tony Dempsey


Tony is an employment lawyer who has been practising for more 35 years.

His commercial and people experience has been gathered over his years of acting for many and varied clients, from start-ups to listed companies, with both their day-to-day and one-off employment issues. He works closely with in-house legal and HR teams and directly with those entrepreneurs without HR in-house but who want personal and trusted support.

He stays close – and encourages the team to stay close – to wider corporate work. He believes it’s vital to have good corporate and commercial knowledge, in order to give rounded advice, recognising that employment law doesn’t exist in a legal vacuum.

His work often dovetails with that of the corporate team and he has extensive experience of share schemes, employee share ownership and employee incentive planning, often when a creative structure is required.

Tony is a creator of practical solutions that work commercially for clients and don’t waste clients’ time or money. He is a great sounding board, and can provide end-to-end process but won’t re-invent the wheel.

He undertakes work for the likes of, Morson Group, Blackpool Football Club and Expert Logistics.
