Profile

Wyn Lewis

Description

Wyn Lewis’ broad practice covers contentious and non-contentious aspects of employment law, which has won him HNW clients from the financial, legal, concierge, recruitment, media and retail industries.

At gunnercooke, he advises senior executives and NGOs on UK and international employment issues, but considers himself to be more of ‘a business person who works with the law than a lawyer that tries to apply the law to business’. Lewis also runs a coaching business, and says clients like the fact that he owns a business outside his solicitor’s practice. ‘It gives me an inside advantage over someone who has only ever provided legal services.

‘The advice I give tends to be corporate and strategic, but within a legal framework,’ he adds.

Lewis, who has more than 30 years’ City-based experience, knew he’d become a trusted adviser when he realised that he no longer needed to advertise.‘ As I get older, my clients get younger – I’m like a corporate uncle,’ he jokes.

The CEO of a UK multi-channel retail business who numbers among Lewis’ clients passed on to gunnercooke a glowing endorsement of the veteran lawyer. ‘I have worked with Wyn on a number of complex HR cases... and his knowledge and understanding of the law combined with a pragmatic and commercial approach has allowed me to navigate through what could have been a difficult situation in a manner that has worked for the business and employees,’ he wrote.
