Head of SA Law’s Employment and Immigration departments
Having specialised in employment law for my entire career, I advise businesses and individuals on all aspects of their employment and immigration rights and responsibilities.
I advise employers on procedural issues such as disciplinary and grievance matters, with extensive experience in redundancy/restructuring programmes and transfer of undertakings for business ownership transfers. A large proportion of my work involves Employment Tribunal litigation, where I negotiate directly with opponents or via ACAS to achieve the best possible outcome for my clients.
I regularly advise individuals who are undergoing redundancy or restructuring programmes, including advice on the processes that their employers should be following, how to handle consultation meetings, and negotiating redundancy compensation packages.
With niche expertise in education law, I also head up SA Law’s Education department. We advise nurseries, independent schools, higher education establishments, colleges and universities. A highlight of this was developing SA Law’s fixed fee package to assist state schools convert to academy status.
