Michael Legister

Partner - Litigation, Employment and More

What do you do?

I head our Commercial Litigation department here at HLF. Having qualified in 1990, I also have a Master’s Degree in employment law and am a qualified Notary Public and member of the Notaries Society which means that I can offer documentation authentication services for use overseas.

Why do your clients like working with you?

Through my background as an in-house lawyer for a public construction company and my experience in banking and corporate law, I can advise my clients in complex commercial disputes, contracts, employment and transactional matters. Clients often come to me with complex legal problems and so, having represented both sides in many dispute scenarios, I can focus their attention on the issues which really matter before agreeing the most appropriate course of action.

Tell us about your clients 

My clients vary from individual litigants to large corporations and even foreign governments! I am fortunate to work in an area of law where each case and each client are different and where the law itself is constantly changing; employment and litigation are each incredibly dynamic and so are the people, corporation and bodies I represent.  

  • The most important thing is to have a legal advisor who has excellent knowledge of their field. I am pleased to say all my employment law concerns were dealt with swiftly and efficiently by Mr Michael Legister. I had complete trust in his ability to resolve my employment queries. I felt comfortable to ask questions and responses were always clear and swift.
