People Seth Roe

Seth Roe


Seth has over 15 years of experience helping media and technology businesses with their HR needs.

“I’m passionate about my clients and the businesses they run.

I provide practical and effective solutions to the executives, managers, in-house lawyers and HR teams that I work with as well as regularly dealing with complicated employment disputes. I will not stop until I’m confident the best possible result has been achieved.

Recent work highlights include successfully defending a number of highly sensitive Employment Tribunal claims related to whistleblowing and discrimination (including achieving sizeable costs awards against the claimants), and strategising and advising on a number of large scale business restructurings.

I recently chaired a Film and TV industry working group analysing the developments in holiday pay law and their implications for productions, and regularly deliver workshops and training to clients and industry bodies on a variety of topics, from TUPE to harassment prevention. I previously led our team’s work in relation to HR-related Covid-19 advice during the pandemic which involved advising all our major US studio and SVOD clients in this area.”

Seth Roe and Charis Shakespeare are exceptional legal professionals and their friendly approach makes them a delight to work with.
