Esther is a Senior Associate in the Employment Team.

Esther advises independent schools, academies, and other educational establishments on employment and education related matters. She provides an all-round service to clients including a mixture of contentious and non-contentious work such as advising on dismissals, employment tribunal litigation, redundancies/reorganisations, contracts, TUPE and discrimination.

She has particular experience in advising on academy conversions, providing day to day legal support to governing bodies and senior management teams, and defending employment tribunal claims. She also advised on the conversion to academy status of one of the first primary schools to become an academy in England, and then became a governor of that school.

Esther gives practical, commercial advice in partnership with clients’ priorities and needs. Her advice is straightforward and decisive as she likes to highlight the way around problems rather than concentrating on the obstacles.

Esther is a member of the Employment Lawyers Association, and she regularly speak at seminars, and write articles on all aspects of Employment Law.
