Profile

I read law at Queen Mary and Westfield College, University of London and graduated in 2001.  After University, I went on to undertake further legal study at the Inns of Court School of Law in London.

I trained as a solicitor at Irwin Mitchell in London and qualified in 2006.  I have specialised exclusively in the employment field for over ten years.

I am delighted to offer my expertise and advice to Docklands Solicitors’ clients following our merger with them in October 2016.

A particular focus of mine is Employment Tribunal advocacy.  As in- house advocate at Capsticks, I represented a number of NHS Trusts, at Employment Tribunal hearings across London and the South East.  I find that my direct experience of Employment Tribunals is a valuable experience, on which to draw when advising clients about employment issues.

I joined the firm in March 2016 and look forward to working with the firm’s existing clients and new ones. 

I regularly advise and represent employers.  I always seek to provide commercial and pragmatic, cost effective advice.  I have particular experience of working with businesses in the healthcare, retail, and construction sectors.  I have also worked with schools, charities and a number of SME’s.

I often work for employees too.  I am able to provide advice to employees about their options, contracts, grievances and employment disputes.  I am often engaged to negotiate exit packages and settlement agreements.  I have recently advised and represented individuals working in banking, healthcare, construction and the media, as well as other senior employees/directors and professionals.

I can help with:

  • Drafting documentation such as contracts and handbooks.
  • General advice on disciplinary, grievance and employment matters.
  • Drafting contracts and handbooks.
  • Employment Law / HR Training.
  • Settlement Agreements.
  • Employment Tribunals.
  • Advocacy.
  • Employment Tribunal Appeals.
  • Discrimination.
  • Redundancies/restructures.
  • Whistleblowing.
  • Protecting Business Interests – confidentiality and restrictive covenants.
  • TUPE.

I present regular seminars and updates for both HR Professionals and Businesses on the latest employment law issues.  Follow this link to our upcoming seminars

When out of the office:

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, listening to Radio 4 and growing things.  I live in Kent and feel lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world.
