Beth Leng joins SA Law as a partner in the employment team

With a particular focus on renumeration, discrimination and gender equality, Beth will be advising both organisations and individuals.

On the 4th May, SA Law welcomed a new senior solicitor into the partnership, Beth Leng. Beth has joined SA Law as a partner within the employment team, previously Beth was working at Mishcon De Reya, where she qualified in 2004.

Beth is a specialist adviser on senior executive matters, considering issues of remuneration and terms of employment, opportunities for growth and conflicts in the employment relationship at a senior level. Her practice is divided between advising organisations and senior executive individuals.

Most of Beth’s clients are based in the financial services, recruitment, luxury goods and media sectors. She’s also worked with charities and not-for-profit organisations. Her work centres around issues of discrimination, equal opportunities and gender equality, representing employers and senior professionals, including solicitors.

Commenting on her decision to join SA Law, Beth said:

“I’ve known SA Law for a long time, referring work to their employment lawyers and occasionally acting opposite the team in cases. They have a reputation for excellence and a real common sense approach to law. I’m excited to join at such a busy time. With employees returning to the office as lockdown lifts, I think we will see more corporates and senior executives requiring legal advice to help navigate this new working environment.”

Chris Cook, Head of Employment and Data Protection at SA Law, added:

“Beth’s experience and attitude to employment law means she is a perfect fit for SA Law. Our focus is on offering holistic advice, and Beth has a wealth of knowledge advising senior executives, HR professionals and business owners on how to handle any issues which may arise and not just when a dispute reaches the tribunal.”
