Read more about me

I provide practical, straightforward advice, focused on understanding my clients’ commercial needs. My expertise spans all aspects of employment law including unfair dismissal, discrimination, TUPE and breach of contract as well as day-to-day matters such as sick pay, family friendly rights, executive termination and change management. I appear regularly in the employment tribunal at both preliminary and full hearings.

My recent experience includes

  • Managing a large scale change to terms and conditions of employment at a unionised site, including the removal of a guaranteed annual pay increase.
  • Advising a high profile client on the removal of a director with a high Twitter profile, and managing the potential publicity.
  • Advising on the impact of the recent case law on holiday pay and sick pay in connection with permanent health insurance.
  • Advising a client in tribunal proceedings involving four claimants who were former directors of the respondent in connection with a TUPE transfer following an insolvency situation, resulting in all claims being dismissed.
