McCabe Curwood scores employment head from NRF

McCabe Curwood has welcomed Nicola Martin to the partnership and tasked her to lead the firm’s employment practice group.

Martin moved from Norton Rose Fulbright (NRF), where she was a special counsel for the last six years. Before NRF, she was also part of UK firms McGrigors, which later merged with Pinsent Masons, and Brodies.

Her practice covers the full range of employment law and services boards, senior management, and legal and HR teams. She said that she is passionate about her clients and their businesses and on focusing on how to best support them in achieving their objectives while navigating a heavily regulated environment.

“The day-to-day aspects of our advice cover all aspects of the employment life cycle, from advice around recruitment, to preparing and rolling out training programmes, policies and contracts, and advising on restraints, executive terminations and restructures,” Martin said. “Within McCabe Curwood, the employment group also plays an important supporting role to the corporate team, providing advice on the employment aspects of mergers and acquisitions.”

Martin further deepens the employment practice and adds to the overall strength of the newly-merged firm, managing partner Andrew Lacey said.

“Nicola brings with her a wealth of experience and knowledge in employment law,” he said. “Nicola’s experience, particularly through her secondments to a major financial organisation, global infrastructure company as well as a transportation corporation is impressive; this first-hand experience offers valuable insight into clients’ businesses, how they operate and also the pain points they experience with the law, which gives us a greater ability to provide outstanding customer experience to our clients.”
