EXPERTISE 

I help organisations and individuals to realise opportunities and resolve disputes within the employment relationship, including where there are allegations of physical, emotional and financial distress.

I am 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.

Much of my work centres around issues of discrimination, equal opportunities and gender equality, representing employers and senior professionals, including solicitors.

My work covers a broad range of sectors including financial services, media, recruitment, luxury goods, charities and not-for-profit organisations.

I also help employers and employees navigate the opportunities and challenges of the new era of agile working and a remote workforce.

I regularly write articles on a range of matters for the media and the SA Law website – you can read some of them here.
