Stefan Martin provides practical and strategic advice in relation to any employment issue a business is likely to face, using over 20 years' experience to guide employers through some of their most sensitive employee related challenges.
He concentrates on high-value, high-profile, high-stakes issues which carry a material reputational and/or financial risk, or which involve making sensitive judgment calls. Much of his practice involves an international dynamic, taking the lead on managing and co-ordinating cross-border projects and issues in multiple jurisdictions for multinational corporations. Clients appreciate his 'unflappable', 'calm and highly astute' manner in what are often highly pressurised situations.
Described as a 'shining in both the contentious and transactional arenas', Stefan handles an extensive array of matters, acting for a longstanding client base focused on financials and well known corporates. Prior to joining Hogan Lovells, Stefan was instrumental in building the top tier employment practice of another international law firm.
Stefan represents respondents in complex Employment Tribunal cases and in relation to High Court claims which often include allegations of whistleblowing and discrimination or which may involve advising on the enforcement of restrictive covenants. He has handled a number of high-profile cases at first instance and at appellate level. He also has a great deal of experience advising clients on board level and senior executive issues.
Stefan's transactional practice spans mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures and restructurings and he has particular knowledge advising on the employment aspects of outsourcing deals, often on an international basis.
