Employment law specialist Paul Nicholls QC has joined Matrix Chambers from 11KBW.
In a statement Matrix said it had recruited Nicholls “because of his strong commercial reputation and practice in employment law cases with a commercial element and related commercial law work”.
Nicholls’ cases have included restraint of trade, confidential information, unlawful competition, contract disputes and directors’ duties cases, LLP disputes and general commercial matters. The QC also practises in public and procurement law.
