About me

I enjoy the people-focused side of advising education establishments in relation to employment issues, as well as the variety; you get a good mix of contentious work, drafting and also day to day advice. I start by taking the time to understand the client’s organisation and how they operate to ensure that the advice is practical for the client’s needs.

My clients cover a wide range of educational organisations and charities. I offer a practical, welcoming and knowledgeable approach, and help employers to manage their relationships with their employees to try and help them get the best from their workforce.

My legal specialisms include disciplinary and grievance advice, advice regarding contracts of employment, policies and procedures, restructuring and redundancies, TUPE, business immigration and a range of Employment Tribunal claims.

Inside of work I am passionate about providing a good service to my clients and getting good results. Outside of work I am passionate about music and rollerskating.

Read questions I'm frequently asked

What do I need to do to acquire talent from overseas?

Since the UK’s exit from the EU, in most cases employers will need to apply to become a licensed sponsor, following which the employer will be able to sponsor workers from overseas provided that specific criteria are met.

How do I deal with an employee that is on long term sick leave?

Much will depend on the circumstances, so let's discuss the background and we can go from there.

My employee is threatening to take me to a tribunal, what do I do?

In the first instance, if the employee does intend to bring a tribunal claim, they will be required to contact ACAS to see if the parties can conciliate the claim and come to an amicable solution. The first step therefore is to have these discussions and see if we can resolve the matter before it gets to a tribunal and this is something that we can assist you with.
