Louise Shaw, Associate, Pinsent Masons, LLP
Louise Shaw is an Associate at Pinsent Masons. She specialises in Employment and Immigration and the crossover between the two. Louise is based in Glasgow but she advises clients across the whole of the UK. Pre-pandemic, she regularly made the short trip to Belfast.
Louise has a broad practice spanning sponsor licence work, including acting as a Level 1 user for many of the firm’s key clients, managing an Employment Tribunal caseload and advising on strategic planning in preparation for Brexit. This has included providing immigration input into Brexit scenario planning sessions run by Pinsent Masons for the senior management teams of Northern Irish clients. She has become adept at advising on the unique position businesses have found themselves in operating across the only UK-EU land border.
More recently Louise has been advising on the changes to the UK immigration rules and the challenges businesses now face when recruiting from the EU. She has also worked closely with her clients in managing the speedy transition to home working and supporting their employees with the challenges of lockdown restrictions.
