Paul Burton

Head of Employment Team


Paul is a member of the Employment Lawyers Association and qualified as an Employment Solicitor in 2007. He specialises in both contentious and non-contentious matters, including unfair dismissal, whistleblowing, disability discrimination, TUPE, contracts and policies.

He represents both companies and employees and his time is split between tribunal work, settlement agreements, HR advice to employers and advising individuals with employment disputes. The complexity of matters varies from straightforward wages claims, through to unfair dismissal, discrimination and TUPE cases.

Paul has been recognised in the 2020/21 Legal 500 which is an independent legal directory.


Paul is sports mad. Tennis, skiing, cricket… you name it, he plays it! Needless to say, Paul is pretty competitive, but also manages to be very laid back. He’s happiest socialising with his friends from the tennis club, particularly if that socialising involves a pint of beer, a glass of Rioja or a plate of curry! A keen traveller, he has a particular fondness for Dublin, but his dream holiday is to visit South Africa.
