Employment Partner Susannah Kintish has been named in The Lawyer's Hot 100 2020. The list recognises the most daring, creative and innovative lawyers from in-house, private practice and the Bar and includes those who are shaping the legal profession right now.
Susannah has been recognised for her work at the vanguard of some of the biggest employment cases of recent years. Many of her cases revolve around the gig economy and the shifting sands of employment status, including her work for Pimlico Plumbers in its long-running employment status dispute in the Supreme Court. The case, which is still ongoing, is now subject to appeal in the Appellate Court on the issue of holiday pay.
Susannah has also acted for several senior women in law firms in relation to high-profile harassment claims. She was also called upon by the Jewish Labour Movement in connection with the Equality and Human Rights Commission’s investigation into the Labour Party for antisemitism.
Susannah acts as a legal mentor to luxury brands as part of the Firm's ‘Walpole’ initiative. As part of this, she provides a sounding board to companies across the entire luxury sector, supporting them on a range of issues, from raising finance to international growth, protecting their brand or managing their people, space or IP.
