Prosperity Law LLP is very pleased to announce that we are continuing to recruit talented individuals into the firm. Today, we welcome David Hession as a Senior Associate in our Employment Team in the Manchester office.

Prosperity Law advises both employees and employers across all aspects of Employment Law, including redundancies and restructures, disciplinary issues, long-term absence and performance issues as well as settlement agreements and executive terminations.

David has considerable expertise in acting for both employers and employees at Employment Tribunals, as well as extensive experience in delivering in-house training for employer clients on HR and employment issues. His wide-ranging skillset makes him an excellent addition to an already high-performing team.

He will work closely with the dynamic Zara O’Hare, an employment solicitor based in the firm’s Manchester office. Zara handles business redundancies/reorganisations and TUPE, whilst also providing general HR support to many SME and commercial businesses as part of the firm’s Engage package. In addition, she works with employers to defend tribunal claims relating to typical employment disputes such as unfair dismissal and discrimination.

Edward Smethurst, the firm’s Managing Partner, said that “The firm’s employment team offers a truly exceptional service to our clients, and David’s wealth of experience in this area will further strengthen the team.

David added, “I am delighted to be joining Prosperity Law LLP. This is a fantastic opportunity for me. The firm has developed a strong reputation in the Manchester legal market and has exciting plans for the future. I look forward to expanding the firm’s employment offering by developing its client base and sustaining the excellent service it provides to its existing clients“.
