About Owen

I am a senior solicitor specialising in employment law, advising employers and employees on contentious and non-contentious employment law issues. I have experience in all areas of employment law, from business reorganisations, redundancies and TUPE transfers, to unfair dismissal, breach of contract and discrimination claims. I also regularly advise on employment contracts, company policies and settlement agreements.

I also have experience of advising senior individuals at major sporting organisations on their employment and termination of employment, as well as advising on other areas of sports law, such as contract negotiation, anti-doping, and image rights issues.

I also act as a football agent, and am registered with the Football Association of Wales to act as an agent for football players in the UK and abroad. I am also a Registered Lawyer under The FA Football Agents Regulations and have represented numerous international footballers in their careers.

I am a fluent Welsh speaker and regularly advise clients through the medium of Welsh.

Owen was excellent. Owen knew the area of law well and offered a number of perspectives to my query. Owen responded within agreed time and within budget. Will happily seek advice from Owen in the future, if ever required.

I spoke to a number of lawyers for this service. However, as soon as I spoke to Owen I knew he was the right person for this task. A very good listener and explained everything in simple terms. Also, remained easy to access through the process and met up in person after delivery for a general discussion. Many thanks Owen.
