I am delighted to announce that earlier this month the Navigator Employment Law team was joined by Euan Smith.
Having acquired an Honours degree from the University of Edinburgh, Euan went on to qualify as a solicitor through Anderson Strathern.
Euan has over 12 years of specialist employment law experience, acting within both private practice and industry. He is particularly focused on developing relationships with retained clients, so he can provide advice tailored to the specific needs of each business.
Euan has much experience, in assisting with the full gambit of employment law related queries, whether that be day to day advice, drafting of new contracts and handbooks or Employment Tribunal representation. He has also appeared in Employment Tribunal Hearings both north and south of the border defending various claim types (including unfair dismissal and disability discrimination).
Euan is always keen to try to manage situations in a way which hopefully avoids the Tribunal system (wherever that is possible) and that might mean a more hands on approach, such as during internal procedures, but with the likelihood that the risk of (successful) claims will have been lowered.
Euan hails from Edinburgh and spends his time between Edinburgh and the capital of the Highlands (Inverness)! A keen sports enthusiast, he previously played a lot of football and cricket, but now spends much his free time working on his golf handicap! When the time allows, he is also an outdoor enthusiast, and likes to bag the odd Munro!
