David Walton



David delivers our Legal Obligations training.

David Walton is an expert employment lawyer who specialises in providing commercial solutions for employment problems to businesses. As Head of Gorvins’ Employment department, he advises across a full range of both contentious and non-contentious employment issues.

David is an experienced litigator and advocate in the Employment Tribunals and has had significant success defending employment claims on behalf of employers. As well as providing day-to-day advice to his employer clients, David also has expertise in more complex employment issues such as whistleblowing, TUPE (Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations) - which broadly protects employees if the business in which they are employed changes hands, the role of directors, and the application and enforceability of restrictive covenants.

David deals with all cases in a very professional and efficient yet friendly manner. He goes above and beyond for his clients to provide a high quality service as well as measured advice, working not only for a business but with them to provide the best possible outcome. 

I use Gorvins for all my employment needs for my business and after having dealt with other firms, no one can meet up to the level of service offered by David and the team at Gorvins. David uniquely combines excellent legal advice with commercial pragmatism.
