Ingrid Hesselbo


I specialise in Employment law, solving a range of employment law issues for clients including employment advisory matters, contentious tribunal cases and supporting on the employment aspects of corporate transactions.


My role involves putting myself in the shoes of employers and employees to help solve their legal and commercial issues. I help clients minimise their employment and HR risks and respond to changes in law and practice in this ever evolving area. Previously I worked as an employment specialist in the in-house legal department of a multinational inter-dealer broker providing pragmatic legal and strategic counsel to a range of stakeholders in the business which puts me in a particularly good position to understand the challenges and pressures faced by in-house legal teams and HR departments.

Our clients are diverse, from international organisations, through to tech start-ups and individuals. As a team we advise clients across a range of sectors including media, technology, financial services, retail and professional services. As a result of my past in-house role, I have a particular interest in the financial services sector and the employment related aspects of that such as team moves, complex bonus arrangements and regulatory issues.

I am a member of Fladgate’s Inclusion and Diversity Committee and am part of the gender and equality sub-committee. I am a lapsed swimmer and an enthusiastic but very beginner pianist.


A boutique-style offering from dedicated employment lawyers offering full service advice to a broad range of domestic and international clients who benefit from sector expertise and tailored contentious and non-contentious advice to ensure efficiency and minimise stress for clients.


Rapid growth and constant innovation in the way businesses and individuals use, store, trade and consume information and content are continually raising new business and legal issues. In the fast-changing media and technology sector, where many traditional approaches are under challenge, we believe that a combination of experience in contract preparation, negotiation and dispute resolution, and a detailed understanding of IP, regulatory and licensing issues are critical. Businesses require professional advisers who understand the myriad issues affecting the industry.


Our e-business and e-commerce team is able to advise on all issues arising from the frequently changing online marketplace in a way which will help clients across a range of sectors launch, maintain and grow their brand while maximising business opportunities.


Our lawyers don’t just advise on the law, but help our clients with the commercial implications of legal decisions. Our team focusses on the practicalities of retailing, whether through a busy store or shopping centre, or using e-tail channels.


We provide practical solutions in contentious and non-contentious situations involving financially distressed businesses through our corporate restructuring and insolvency group. The team advises insolvency practitioners, banks, other lending institutions, stakeholders, troubled companies, directors and individuals on a variety of corporate insolvency-related issues.


We act across a broad swathe of corporate matters in the UK and internationally on both public and private deals.
