Aron has particular experience in dealing with high-value employment and partnership disputes involving whistle-blowing, discrimination, bonuses, restrictive covenants and team moves. His recent cases include acting for Chelsea Football Club and José Mourinho in the defence of high profile employment tribunal proceedings brought by Dr. Eva Carneiro, and for a broker defending a £500k bonus dispute in the Court of Appeal. He has considerable experience of defending and bringing claims for unfair and wrongful dismissal in the employment tribunal and of supervising junior lawyers in undertaking this work for employers and employees.

Aron also helps clients with general HR issues such as disciplinary and grievance procedures, and advises on the redundancy and TUPE implications of large business reorganisations and transfers. Clients value Aron’s prompt, practical advice.

Aron’s main sector focus areas are financial and professional services, fintech and technology. He is frequently involved in cross-border deals and disputes. Aron is experienced in advising on the employment issues facing firms and individuals subject to FCA/PRA regulations, including dealing with investigations, disciplinaries and managing reputational issues.
