David Morgan

Associate Solicitor

What My Clients Have Said

David was a pleasure to work with. He handled my complicated and highly sensitive case with honesty and integrity. His advice was detailed but simple to understand. While he would say he was “only doing his job,” his ability to listen to my complex case and to advocate on my behalf was exceptional. David set my expectations from the offset and was always available to discuss any concerns I had. David’s attitude remained positive throughout and this ensured I remained positive. I would highly recommend David to anyone who needs a strong, confident and professional lawyer. Tamara Bodington

Employment Law
Employment Law

David has a background in science and the pharmaceutical industry. After successfully retraining with Girlings, he qualified as a solicitor in 2013.

He has degrees in Microbiology and Biotechnology in addition to graduating from the University of Kent at Canterbury in 2010 with a first class degree in Law. Before training as a solicitor he spent more than 10 years as a research scientist in the pharmaceutical industry; working for the world’s largest pharmaceutical company Pfizer, in their Bioprocess Development Group at Sandwich, Kent.

The analytical and commercial skills gained while working in industry mean David fully understands the commercial pressures faced by his clients.

Following the announcement of the closure of the Pfizer manufacturing site he was selected by his colleagues to represent them during the redundancy process and therefore, somewhat unusually for an employment lawyer, has experience of large scale redundancy consultations from an employee’s perspective.

David’s experiences in representing his colleagues led him to choose to retrain as a solicitor on leaving Pfizer in 2008 and following his graduation from the University of Kent he completed his Legal Practice Certificate at the College of Law, Guildford.

My Specialisms

David has experience in many areas of employment law. He provides day to day HR and employment law advice to a number of employers who instruct him on a retainer basis and is experienced in:

  • Drafting and reviewing contracts of employment and policies
  • Advising employers and employees regarding disciplinary, performance and capability issues
  • Advising regarding national minimum wage, overtime payments and holiday pay
  • Advising with regard to restrictive covenants and confidentiality issues.  

David also regularly provides advice to both employers and employees regarding the termination of employment through settlement agreements.

The analytical and commercial skills gained while working in industry mean David fully understands the commercial pressures faced by his clients, and he is always conscious of the need to provide legal advice which takes account of the commercial needs of his clients.

David is a volunteer advisor for Kent Law Clinic, and provides pro-bono advice at its weekly advice sessions.
