Deloitte Legal has appointed two new partners to its team, with Andrew Lilley and Liz Pierson joining the firm.
Lilley is to head up its employment law offering, and will be responsible for building the firm’s employment law practice in the UK. He will focus on providing businesses with advice on their workforce and all aspects of employment law and employee relations.
Pierson will become the legal lead of its reward practice, which acts for 25% of the FTSE 350, and will lead a team of approximately 20 lawyers offering legal advice around executive remuneration, equity and incentives for both private and public clients.
Michael Castle, UK managing partner for Deloitte Legal, said: “Andrew and Liz both have fantastic track records in their respective fields. As we continue to build Deloitte Legal’s presence in the UK, we are determined to hire the very best talent in order to provide our clients with best-in-class service.”
Pierson added: “Having the right reward strategy is a crucial competitive advantage in the world of work. Pay structures, equity incentives and performance related pay are often misunderstood, but the right approach to reward can help increase employee engagement, reduce costs and improve talent acquisition and retention.”
