Katya Gevargiz is an associate in Steptoe’s London office, where she is a member of the Employment Group.

Ms. Gevargiz advises on both contentious and non-contentious employment law issues.  She works primarily with employers providing support and guidance on a range of issues from day-to-day HR matters (including disciplinary, grievance and performance management processes) to more complex restructuring arrangements, negotiated exits and discrimination issues.

Ms. Gevargiz studied law at the London School of Economics before completing the Legal Practice Course with distinction.  She qualified as a solicitor in 2009.  Prior to joining Steptoe, Ms. Gevargiz worked in both private practice and as an in-house lawyer in a large national organization.  Whilst in-house, she worked closely with senior managers and HR and was responsible for offering commercial and practical legal advice.

In addition to her advisory work, Ms. Gevargiz has experience of developing and delivering training on a range of topics.  As an in-house lawyer, she was also responsible for writing the regular employment law update for her colleagues in HR, which provided practical commentary on the latest employment law developments.
