Ann Bevitt

Partner

I love helping clients get the most out of their two most valuable assets – their employees and their data.

Ann Bevitt's employment practice covers all aspects, both contentious and non-contentious, of employment law and employment-related matters. On the non-contentious side, she focuses on the employment issues arising out of international reorganisations, outsourcings, insolvencies and mergers and acquisitions. Her contentious work includes the enforcement of restrictive covenants and claims arising on termination of employment. In her privacy practice, Ann assists clients with compliance and risk management, advising on data transfers, privacy policies, monitoring employees and undertaking internal investigations (domestic and cross-border).
