Market-leading, specialist employment law firm BDBF, ranked as one of The Times’ Best Law Firms, today announces the appointment of new equity partner Paula Chan. Previously a senior employment lawyer who led the employment department at a top national firm, Paula’s hire adds significantly to BDBF’s already strong market lead for representing senior individuals in regulated sectors in their employment disputes.
Since its launch eight years ago BDBF has risen quickly to the top of the rankings in its chosen areas of practice, according to the leading legal directories. Paula’s appointment continues BDBF’s growth trajectory both in terms of size and market stature.
Over her 10 years in practice, Paula has worked on high-profile employee exits and high-value whistleblowing, breach of contract and workplace discrimination disputes. Her professional pedigree further strengthens BDBF’s offering to senior individuals in the financial and professional services sectors, also in the technology, healthcare and other regulated industries.
Gareth Brahams, Managing Partner of BDBF said,
“We are delighted Paula has joined the firm, bringing her expertise and energy for representing senior executives which aligns with our strategic focus. Paula joins at a time of unprecedented change in the workplace and her experience, particularly in the financial, legal and professional services sectors, will ensure that we continue to cement our position as the go-to firm for senior regulated individuals in their employment disputes.”
“I am excited to be joining BDBF and to working with a team of other market-leading employment law experts with a reputation for excellence and groundbreaking work. I look forward to contributing to the next chapter of the firm’s growth.”
