Matthew "Matt" Charles Gingell (born 21 December 1972) is a British employment law solicitor and commentator from London, England.

Early life & education[edit]

He was educated at Uppingham Scool in Rutland and the University of the West of England in Bristol, where he took a law degree and the Legal Practice Course. He qualified as a solicitor in June 1999.


Gingell advises employers and employees on all employment law issues including redundancy, restructuring, settlement agreements, bonuses, discrimination, whistleblowing, unfair dismissal, TUPE, restrictive covenants, confidentiality, flexible working, disciplinary and grievance hearings, performance and conduct, and references. Gingell currently has consultancy arrangements with law firms in London. Prior to developing his existing practice, he gained knowledge and experience at other London law firms.

Publications & authorships[edit]

Gingell has been author and written articles relating to employment law for publications including The Independent [1], The Guardian [2], The Express [3] and City A.M.[4]. He has been interviewed on Sky News [5]discussing stories relating to employment law such as the legal rights of people working in the gig economy, personal relationships at work and the use of gagging orders in settlement agreements. He has also written articles for human resources publications such as Personnel Today [6]) and People Management[7] as well as for the Law Society Gazette [8]


For a number of years, Gingell has striven to simplify employment law and provide information for employees, HR professionals and business owners. He developed a website, using a theme “making sense of employment law” with a number of accessible employee and HR guides on different employment law topics. His idea was to explain the law in an easy-to-understand way cutting out complicated legal jargon. The guides are free and downloadable from the site. Gingell also circulates the guides through social media including Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

In April 2019 Gingell launched a series of YouTube videos summarising employment law. He believed that video would be a powerful way of sharing content on employment law.
