My Expertise

I am responsible for managing a number of significant client relationships for the firm and am noted for my ability to ensure a coordinated service line approach for the benefit of clients.

Read more about me

I am particularly known for my expertise in employment litigation including discrimination and whistle blowing cases and have undertaken extensive High Court injunction work. I regularly appear as a tribunal advocate although more recently my work has focussed on guiding clients through transformational change. My advice is always pertinent to the client’s sector and has a particular focus on the retail, healthcare and outsourcing sectors. 

I speak frequently at internal and external forums and provide bespoke training for clients on key and changing employment law issues. Events that I have spoken at include the CIPD annual conference in Manchester. I sit as an ELA representative in the tribunal users group.

I advise clients at a senior level on not only significant and sensitive ER issues, but also on directors’ issues and people strategy generally; this includes collective consultation, labour relations, restructuring, board disputes and executive terminations.

I have been recognised by the legal directories for ten years. Most recently, Chambers and Partners stated that I "see the world through commercial eyes”, and “understands we're running a business and is very responsive."
