ProfileI am an experienced direct access practitioner, having been accredited since 2008.
I aim to respond to any enquiry on the same day.
I act for various trade unions and local authorities.
I am an experienced trial advocate retained by local authorities (and so very familiar with Respondent work) with an excellent track record of success. I am adept at handling work for Claimants and Respondents.
I have experience of many such enquiries and endeavour to offer a user-friendly and reliable service. I have successfully run multi-day unfair dismissal and discrimination claims.
In addition to trials, I provide advice on all aspects from recruitment to termination, draft and negotiating compromise agreements and employment contracts, can assist with the enforcement of restrictive covenants and confidentiality against departing or ex-employees, advise on managing sickness absence, disciplinary and grievance procedures and provide you with bespoke training on all aspects of employment law.
I advise businesses and charities on all aspects of employment law and have a particular interest in the development of social media and its impact in the workplace. I regularly advise and represents large and small businesses in discrimination claims, TUPE issues, restrictive covenants including the removal of confidential business information and unfair dismissal disputes. My recent advisory experience involves assisting companies with the TUPE implications of service provision changes and the contractual implications for several employees.
My tribunal experience involves defending an employer against an unfair dismissal claim based on childcare requirements and a whistleblowing claim against employers. I deliver seminars and have recently provided an in-house seminar on discrimination in the provision of goods and services and spoke about the impact of religion and belief in the workplace for my Chambers employment law seminar.
For Regulatory work, I have appeared before the Medical practitioners Tribunal service panel advancing submissions on behalf of Doctors and liaising with the GMC representatives. I have represented medical professionals in interim order panel and fitness to practice panel hearings.
I have a particular interest in Education law and have regularly appeared in the first tier tribunal representing parents and local authorities in relation to issues such as discrimination and challenges to the SEN statement. I had previous experience as clerk to the School appeals panel.
