Gillian MacLellan


Gillian is a Partner within CMS Employment team and has been with the firm since 2000, working across the UK. A large proportion of her work is for clients in the financial services sector where she provides the full spectrum of employment law support, ranging from employment advice on outsourcings to representing clients in whistleblowing claims before the Employment Tribunal to supporting clients preparing for the HR impact of regulatory changes, such as the IAR. Gillian is also very engaged in diversity matters and currently is active in relation to gender pay, writing various articles on the topic and recently appearing as part of the panel giving evidence to the Scottish Government on the gender pay gap in financial services. Gillian is described by one UK legal directory as "hardworking, focused and non-pretentious" and another reports that clients feedback she "provides a fantastic service and her response times are great" and "is very solution-driven and knows how to make the law work for us."
