Former DLA Piper employment partner, Anne Mannix, has joined Averta Employment Lawyers as the director of its new London office in Devonshire Street, which will offer employment law advice to directors, senior executives and professionals.

On leaving DLA Piper in 2003 Mannix went on to become head of employment at BGC Partners/Cantor Fitzgerald. Latterly she has been an employment partner at a niche practice in London, having previously worked at the Practical Law Company as employment law editor.

David Sykes, partner at Averta Employment Lawyers says:
“Anne’s extensive experience fits perfectly with Averta. We have always represented clients from London, but having a senior lawyer of Anne’s calibre on the spot will mean we can provide an even more responsive service.”

From Averta’s London office, Mannix will use her experience working in the city to help senior employees and LLP members with complex work issues. She will also advise small to medium sized companies who need her particular expertise and smaller law firms who do not have the ability to advise on some employment law issues.

Mannix has considerable experience gained in the financial services sector, advising companies, LLPs and senior individuals. She has handled a variety of high value termination claims, including bonus and discrimination issues, and is particularly sensitive to the financial regulatory considerations of a termination.

Mannix commented:
“I think my expertise in employment law issues affecting senior individuals will be a big asset to Averta’s London clients. I am looking forward to working with partners, Alan Jones and David Sykes to further develop the business by offering clients a ‘second to none’ service.”

For some years Mannix has also assisted as legal adviser at her local Citizen’s Advice Bureau, and has worked on a pro-bono basis on a number of tribunal cases. Additionally she is a trustee of two local charities in West London.

Mannix has used her expertise to present seminars and webinars, and provide practical training sessions on a number of employment law topics. She is also a member of the Employment Law Association and the Discrimination Law Association.
