Liverpool and Manchester firm Mace & Jones has recruited a former Employment Tribunal chairman to its employment law team.
Alan Coventry joins as a consultant after spending 20 years as full-time chairman of the Liverpool Tribunal. Martin Edwards, head of employment law at Mace & Jones, said: "This is an ideal opportunity to provide clients with insight into tribunal procedure." Coventry was a partner at Manchester firm George Davis & Co before his appointment as chairman of the Liverpool Employment Tribunal in 1982. He was a founder member and president of the Council of Employment Tribunal Chairmen. "It's very unusual for a full-time chairman with such long experience to return to private practice," said Edwards, who has appeared before Coventry many times. Coventry said: "Mace & Jones has a national reputation for its work in employment law and it seemed the perfect platform to start a new chapter in my career."
