Jason Butwick practices in all aspects of partnership and employment law, focusing on the financial services sector.

His practice covers structuring and drafting tailored partnership and employment documentation (such as partnership agreements, deeds of admission, employment contracts, incentive and deferral plans, policies and procedures) and advising on SMCR and Remuneration Code implications. He also regularly advises on partnership and employment disputes (such as disciplinary and grievance processes, dismissals, unlawful discrimination and whistleblowing claims, disputed member removals, bonus and remuneration disputes, and enforcement of confidentiality and non-competition obligations).

Mr. Butwick is the author of Tolley’s Guide to the National Minimum Wage (Tolley, 1999) and is a contributor to Hedge Funds and the Law (2nd edition, Sweet & Maxwell, 2016) and to Tolley’s Employment Law Looseleaf. He has been interviewed on Radio 4’s Today programme about employment law issues. He has also written numerous articles on regulatory, partnership and employment law topics and is a regular presenter on partnership and employment topics.

Mr. Butwick is recommended as a leading lawyer for both employment and partnership law by the leading legal directories. Chambers UK 2019 notes that sources praise his clear commercial advice as well as his communication and practicality. The guide cites clients as noting that “he has a great depth of technical expertise but offers it in a commercial and user-friendly way. He is quick to identify the key issues and is both commercial and incisive in how he thinks about them.” The 2018 guide describes him as a "technically excellent and commercially astute practitioner" who is "engaging, productive, able to get things done on time and generally very much at the top of his game". Mr. Butwick is also recommended in the 2018 edition of The Legal 500 UK which acknowledges him as ‘highly commercial’, ‘astute’ while providing ‘accessible and commercial’ advice.
