Jane Wheeler - Partner

I advise businesses and senior individuals on employment law issues.

The support I give to businesses includes advice on: protecting the business, including enforcing post-termination restrictions; implementing redundancies and restructures; outsourcing and the implications of TUPE; and strategic removals of senior and board level individuals, including handling any employment claims. I also provide employment law training for HR and senior managers.

I advise senior individuals negotiating service agreements and settlement agreements. I also advise on strategy for negotiating an exit in difficult circumstances, including handling any employment claims.

My advice is focused on finding a pragmatic solution to my clients’ employment-related problems. I provide this advice in a clear and user-friendly way.

Work Highlights

Advising a set of barristers Chambers on new employment contracts and protecting their business from departing employees.

Advising a senior individual in the banking sector on claims for unfair dismissal, whistleblowing, discrimination and failure to pay a discretionary bonus.

Advising senior individuals in a private equity-backed business on their employee shareholder agreements.


I work with clients in a variety of sectors including in the recruitment, financial services, hotel and leisure and legal sectors.

Outside of work

I am a keen marathon runner. I also love books and the theatre.
