Gillian Hanson

Senior Associate


Get to know the CG team

After Gillian completed her studies back in 2013, Gillian worked at DWF Plc, in-house with a FTSE 100 insurer client, before completing her training contract with Napthens LLP and qualifying as a Solicitor specialising in employment law in 2017.

Following qualification, Gillian worked for 6 years at top 100 UK law firm, Gateley Plc, as part of a Legal 500 Tier 1 team advising large employers, including many household names. She provides commercially sound and pragmatic advice and is truly a safe pair of hands.

Gillian joined CG as a Senior Associate in May 2023 and continues to develop excellent client relationships, providing legal advice in plain English and always acting as a trusted business adviser.

Gillian has extensive experience working with directors and senior executives as part of large corporate transactions drafting and negotiating contractual documents, warranties and indemnities. Gillian has also developed a keen eye for detail through conducting legal due diligence on both acquisitions and investments. At the end of the employment life cycle, Gillian negotiates high level exit packages via settlement agreements, working closely with her corporate colleagues to address any leaver provisions for employee shareholders and managing LTIPs and other share/incentive plans.

Gillian has a proven track record acting for both claimants and respondents in the Employment Tribunal and her contentious work covers the whole range of Employment Tribunal claims, including unfair dismissal, discrimination and whistleblowing. Most recently she has successfully defended a claim at full hearing against one of our motor sector clients, in which her thorough and careful preparation navigated the risks created by disclosure.
