Sophie Vanhegan advises clients on all aspects of employment law and specialises in complex employment litigation, regularly advising on restrictive covenant, breach of confidentiality and team move matters which involve High Court injunctions and subsequent trials, bonus disputes and high value discrimination claims. Many of the cases she works on have cross-jurisdictional elements.

Prior to joining GQ Employment Law, Sophie worked for ‘Magic Circle’ firm Linklaters. During this time she also undertook a five-month secondment to global investment bank RBS, to assist with restructuring issues following RBS's acquisition of ABN AMRO.
