He regularly advises senior executives and partners on leaving and entering employment or partnerships as well as firms and boards dealing with such matters and internal issues.

As an expert litigator with extensive experience in Employment Tribunals, the High Court and above, Brian achieves effective and professional solutions through litigation if a negotiated resolution is not possible. Throughout his distinguished career Brian has held partnership roles at various highly-regarded law firms including Charles Russell, Fladgate LLP, Rawlison Butler and most recently Rosenblatt Solicitors.

“I am delighted to be joining Keystone. Having run employment departments in major traditional City firms, I have watched Keystone’s development with interest. Its innovative, business-minded law firm model allows me to concentrate on giving my clients the service they want in the ways which they want. In addition, my clients can call upon the skills of a host of flexible, dynamic and experienced lawyers across a wide range of expertise.”
