I am a partner in Bevan Brittan’s Employment, Immigration and Pensions department, with over 20 years of experience as a specialist employment lawyer. I act for clients in a wide range of fields and have considerable experience advising both private and public bodies in a number of sectors, including; local and central government, housing, education, and the private sector.
My general experience includes all areas of employment work and I have dealt with a number of high profile cases in Tribunals, the Employment Appeal Tribunal, the High Court and the Court of Appeal. I have specific expertise in advising on equal pay and discrimination, restructuring and redundancy programmes, negotiated exits, changing terms and conditions, and providing TUPE advice in connection with service delivery models including shared services, partnering arrangements, joint ventures and outsourcing. I also provide support to in-house legal and HR teams, acting as a sounding board on both strategic and operational HR issues.
I have had articles published in the Local Government Lawyer and Local Government Chronicle and have also contributed articles to Lexology and EM LawShare
I have spoken at the LLG Weekend School on employment matters.
