Worthingtons are delighted to welcome John Kelly as a Solicitor in our expanding Employment Law Department.
John joins Worthingtons’ employment team from a large UK firm where he gained three years' experience as an employment solicitor in the Belfast office. In the course of the last three years, John has gained experience in both contentious and non-contentious employment law work, focusing on the defence of tribunal proceedings both in Northern Ireland and GB. He has also advised on employment issues arising in the context of corporate/property transactions.
John is delighted to be joining a firm with such an outstanding reputation in the employment law field and looks forward to developing and furthering relationships with a range of local clients across Northern Ireland.
