Brief speaker/company profile

Paul Kelly

Paul Kelly joined Blacks Solicitors in 2002, where he trained, qualified, and became a Partner in 2011 and is currently Head of the Employment team.

Having practiced exclusively in employment law for 14 years, Paul is regarded as an experienced practitioner who is known for his common sense approach to dealing with employment disputes and his focus on achieving the best commercial outcome for his clients.

He specialises in advising on redundancy, restructuring, grievances, disciplinary procedures, and employment litigation, and has particular expertise in advising on and negotiating senior exit strategies on behalf of employers and employees.

Paul is frequently asked to provide commentary for national publications on a vast range of employment and HR issues such as the gig economy, the display of religious symbols at work and bereavement leave.

He is recognised by the Legal 500 as being a “phenomenal lawyer”, “personable” and “technically strong.”

Paul is also a visiting lecturer at the University of Law.

He supervises the Employment team on all matters.


Euan Lawrence

Euan Lawrence joined Blacks Solicitors in 2006 where he trained and qualified in 2008. He became a Partner in the Employment team in 2019.

He specialises in providing clear, practical advice on workplace disputes and other aspects of employment law to employers (predominantly owner‑managed businesses) and individual employees.

Particular areas of strength include drafting and negotiating settlement agreements, advising on exit strategies, preparing service agreements, advising on TUPE transfers (related to business sales, tendering for public sector contracts and intra-group transfers) and contesting Employment Tribunal claims.

Euan has considerable experience of presenting on a variety of topics to clients and business contacts both through Blacks and his involvement with a BNI networking group (of which he has been a member for over 10 years). He has also appeared on BBC Radio Leeds, Radio Aire, FixRadio, LBC Radio, Radio Ulster, U105, UCB, talkSPORT and BBC Look North discussing the practical application of employment law in the workplace.
