I am co-lead of our Higher Education practice and an employment and immigration law specialist.
I have particular experience within the education, healthcare, local government, social housing, financial institutions and retail markets. My area of specialism is managing discrimination disputes and I have handled many substantial race and disability claims for clients. My experience ranges from internal disciplinary and grievance levels, right up to representing matters in the Court of Appeal.
I also regularly advise clients on HR projects such as TUPE transfers, restructurings and changes to terms and conditions.
My practice also extends to leading an in-house immigration law group that advises both the public and private sector on how to protect their top talent recruited from both inside and outside the European Union.
I regularly provide training to clients on employment, immigration and discrimination issues.
- I acted on one of the UK's largest whistleblowing cases involving an aerospace company.
