EXPERTISE

I help employers and employees with a broad range of issues, with particular expertise in dispute resolution and easing situations that have the potential to damage an employer-employee relationship. This includes negotiating settlements for clients, and advising on a wide range of other contractual issues such as the validity and enforcement of restrictive covenants.

Where possible, I help clients to avoid the uncertainty and expense of tribunal proceedings if a satisfactory out-of-court settlement can be negotiated. In situations where a hearing is unavoidable, I benefit from an extremely high track record of success at tribunals, and can help to both prepare your case and represent you on the day. I will also advise you on the prospects of success and potential outcomes, which helps you to choose the most appropriate course of action.

My advisory expertise also covers a range of other sensitive employment situations, including the fair and reasonable application of redundancy procedures.

Prior to my legal training, I worked in the HR team of a prominent London charity for two years, which gave me an excellent practical grounding in the needs and challenges of employers.
