• I am a partner in the Employment Team at Bevan Brittan.
     
    I joined the firm in 1995 having practised as a barrister since 1987. I advise employers on all aspects of contentious and non-contentious employment and discrimination law.  
     
    The types of issues I advise on include Boardroom disputes, large-scale reorganisation and redundancies, injunction proceedings following strike ballots, senior executive terminations, discrimination and whistleblowing claims. I have extensive advocacy experience in the Employment Tribunal and the EAT, as well as the higher courts. 

    Publications

    I have contributed various articles to XpertHR. I am also regularly called on by national media organisations to comment on topical employment law issues.

    Seminars

    I recently spoke at the Health Finance Directors Conference on employment matters.
