Can anyone recommend one in London? My partner is up against quite a complicated situation with his employers (a fairly big company) so he wants to have all the facts - and someone who really knows their stuff to represent him, should it come to it.

Any suggestions very much appreciated.

Try Gareth Brahams at Stewart Law, previously at Lewis Silkin.
When I used him, some years ago, he let me deal with the aspects of the situation I was capable of dealing with, so didn't rack up costs unnecessarily. www.stewartslaw.com/Gareth-Brahams-Head-of-Employment-at-Stewarts-Law-named-in-The-Hot-100-of-The-Lawyer.aspx

I have used Speechlys (fine), but I also really like Wragges. Trevor Gibson.

I'm 52 and being made redundant. The company has offered an incentive to keep employees with the knowledge to cover the transition period. The incentive will mean I will hit the 40% salary bracket. Would I be in my rights to ask the company to cover the extra amount taxed at 40%

You can ask, but you won't necessarily get anything additional - I imagine it will depend on the strength of your bargaining position. How much do they really need you and your knowledge? If you are going into the 40% bracket, it means that you will still be getting an increased salary, but you won't see quite so much of it.

The other thing to consider is that you will be able to spread your income over the coming year....so if you will not be earning anything after you are made redundant, you can spread your earnings over the months when you aren't getting anything. So in effect, you might get a rebate.
