RWK Goodman strengthens firm’s employment team with four key appointments

RWK Goodman announces a series of new appointments in London that will enhance the firm’s employment law offering and are in line with the firm’s sustainable growth plans.

Marta Mendiondo, Martin Pratt, Holly Freuchen and Sudipta Dey join the firm this week, from Ince & Co. 

Marta Mendiondo has been appointed head of Immigration London, with Sudipta Dey joining the team as an associate (senior immigration advisor). Marta has 18 years’ experience in immigration and nationality law, having previously worked as a visa and passport officer for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the Home Office, and in the British Embassies in Moscow, Rome and Madrid. 

Sudipta is an Indian qualified lawyer and has 12 years’ experience dealing with both corporate/business and private immigration matters. She has advised on all major areas of immigration and nationality law – including innovator and startup visas, EU applications, sponsor licences and compliance training.

The immigration team will be able to advise on all aspects of UK immigration law. The majority of their recent work has revolved around post-Brexit migration routes for EEA nationals, companies seeking to obtain licences to sponsor foreign nationals, investors, skilled workers, global talent, student and family visas.

Martin Pratt joins RWK Goodman as a partner, specialising in advising organisations and senior professionals on employment and partnership law matters. He acts for employers from a variety of sectors, including law, construction, logistics, media and the arts, to resolve any employment law issue. He also represents professional private clients, like public company directors, LLP members, lawyers, bankers, hedge fund managers and tech entrepreneurs, in a variety of complex issues.

Holly Freuchen joins RWK Goodman as a senior associate. Her practice focuses on employment tribunal and High Court employment litigation where she is experienced in acting for the claimant and the respondent.

Martin Pratt comments: “It’s fantastic to be joining such a pedigree outfit with deep roots in both the City and nationally. It’s the firm base the team and I were looking for. For us, workplace relationships and those between employers and employees are some of the most important in anyone’s life. I really enjoy dealing with the human issues that arise from that and dealing with the challenges they pose.”

Marta Mendiondo comments: “We are very excited to join RWK Goodman to expand the existing Immigration and Nationality offering, both for corporates and private clients. We understand the challenges that the current immigration landscape poses for employers and individuals, and we are committed to providing the best support for them to achieve their goals”.

Malcolm Gregory, partner and head of employment comments: “We are delighted to welcome Marta, Martin, Holly and Sudipta to the firm and wish them every success. The team have a leading reputation and will be a huge asset to our employment clients in London and further afield.”
