What can I do for you?

I provide legal advice and commercial solutions in the area of employment law. I work with businesses of varying sizes, from start ups to multinational Plc’s and across a large range of sectors including recruitment, retail, logistics, healthcare, and sport. Within the public sector I work closely with not-for-profit organisations, including colleges and community interest companies with local authority commissioning arrangements.

Supporting my clients’ objectives

My experience is that clients require tailored advice that suits their specific business needs, objectives, and approach to risk. Providing informed advice in the context of an understanding of your business is key to assisting you to achieve the optimum solution. I will work with you as an extension of your team, to assist with the management of employment issues that you are likely to face, whether they are strategic business decisions or day to day problems that can distract you from managing and achieving your core business objectives.
