• I am an employment lawyer with experience of advising a range of employers including NHS trusts, registered providers, housing associations and professional sports clubs on all aspects of employment law. Before qualifying as an associate, I was a professional cricketer for 14 years.

    I deal with all aspects of the employment relationship. On the contentious side I assist in the defence of all types of Employment Tribunal claims, particularly unfair dismissal, discrimination and equal pay claims. In addition, I can advise on more non-contentious issues such as drafting employment contracts, policies and procedures, recruitment, redundancies and disciplinary and grievance matters. I can also provide employment law training and workshops.
