SA Law Expands Employment Team

New talent shows the strength of the firm's training programme and collaborative culture

SA Law is proud to welcome two more solicitors to its employment team, James Cresswell and Stephanie Clarke, bringing the team size up to seven qualified lawyers.

James trained with SA Law, most recently, supporting colleagues and clients on a whole host of employment matters. Stephanie, meanwhile, has moved from SA Law’s family team and brings with her highly relevant and transferable skills.

Chris Cook, head of the employment team at SA Law, said: “It’s fantastic to be able to welcome two more solicitors into the employment team, and to support the progression of these talented lawyers.

“James has been an integral part of the employment team during much of his training, and Stephanie brings with her some really valuable experience from family law. Stephanie also trained with the employment team before qualifying into the family law team, which is hugely beneficial to the firm’s clients when legal issues cross the two practice areas. The different teams at SA Law work in this collaborative way, meaning the firm is able to facilitate lawyer moves between departments.

“Since Beth Leng joined, we’ve been on a journey to grow as a team to ensure we can offer clients across the board a holistic, full service. Beth’s expertise in advising high net worth professionals on all aspects of the employment relationship, in their business or personal capacity, has led to an increased demand for our support.

“The growing popularity of SA Law’s Employer Protection Scheme, which enables employers to get fixed-cost expert advice on managing employment relationships and resolving concerns before they turn into legal disputes, also accounts for the decision to expand the team.”

SA Law’s employment team offers bespoke legal advice on contentious and non-contentious matters to employers and employees, providing services to a range of clients including company and HR directors and professional advisers, both locally and in London. The team has long-standing relationships with high-net-worth individuals, whether it is for their business or in relation to their own employment.

In addition to employment issues, the team has expertise in data protection law. This enables the team to offer a full service in terms of both employment advice and how data protection should be reflected in the employment relationship.

SA Law is a full-service law firm established in 2005 with offices in St Albans and London, advising both businesses and individuals.
