Boost For Irwin Mitchell's London Employment and Professional Discipline Team With New Solicitor Hire
Irwin Mitchell has strengthened its award winning employment and professional discipline team in London with the appointment of a new solicitor as part of its plans for strategic growth in the senior executive market.
Céline Winham joined the firm’s London office in April, having previously been an employment solicitor at Bolt Burdon.
Specialising in advising employees on various aspects of employment law, Céline has wide experience of contentious and non-contentious work. This has included negotiating employee exits, assisting clients with grievance and disciplinary matters, advising on contracts of employment and settlement agreements, as well as litigating in the Employment Tribunal in discrimination, whistleblowing and unfair dismissal claims.
After studying law at the University of Southampton, Céline went on to take her LPC at the University of Law in Guildford. From here, as a newly qualified solicitor, Céline worked as part of Munday’s employment team, where she gained litigation experience across different tribunals.
Commenting on her new role, Céline said: “Irwin Mitchell has an enviable reputation for supporting its clients, colleagues and communities alike. I’m looking forward to playing my part in seeing this continues and working with a team with a strong track record of success.
“As the world of work recovers from the last two years, many employees are re-assessing their careers and priorities. We are working to support them on this journey and deliver the advice and outcomes they are looking for.”
