As an employment solicitor, I deal with all kinds of employment law issues including discrimination, post-termination restrictions and termination. I advise on the employment aspects of mergers, acquisitions, outsourcing and insourcing and am a very experienced tribunal advocate, with experience handling employment tribunal claims across the country.
I am ranked as a Band 1 Employment lawyer for the South by Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession, which describes me as “very user friendly, approachable, patient and someone who takes the time to listen.”
"Thank you for all your hard work and clarity on this challenging case." - HR Manager at national retailer
Areas of Expertise
I was instructed to provide employment advice on a multi-million pound, multi-service outsourcing agreement. The services were all being provided to our client by multiple different existing suppliers. Those services were being transferred simultaneously to a single, new supplier. We provided tailored advice on TUPE and the related information and consultation processes. I provided related advice on mobility clauses and collective redundancy issues. We drafted and negotiated the employment warranties and indemnities for the entrance and exit in the Outsourcing Agreement. As a result of my assistance, all of the multiple transfer processes were smooth and successful.
