I am a Senior Solicitor in the Employment team at Bolt Burdon.
I advise and act for employers and executive employees on both contentious and non-contentious employment issues.
Work is a huge part of our lives and when things start to go wrong the impacts can be far reaching if not dealt with effectively. I understand this and the importance of acting swiftly from the outset to support and protect your interests so that you can move forward.
Having helped hundreds of clients, my advice is clear, commercial, concise and free of legal jargon. Having previously set up and managed an in-house employment service, I know that no two matters are the same. I focus on understanding my clients’ needs and expectations in order to tailor my advice and approach accordingly.
I work pro-actively with clients to put in place internal policies and strategies to avoid contention arising and to protect employer and employee alike. Where relationships break down unavoidably, I guide employers and employees to reach resolution, both through the Employment Tribunal process and with a focus and negotiation strategy for settlement where this is appropriate.
I am a member of the Employment Lawyers Association and have experience delivering training to a range of organisations and individuals.
Outside of work I am usually planning my next holiday and despite not being the “outdoorsy type”, find myself in increasingly precarious situations across the globe (see zip lining across Machu Picchu despite a crippling fear of heights). I am also impressively bad at learning (butchering) Spanish with anyone who will humour me.
