I work in Employment law because I love working with people. I always seek to add value and I aim to achieve clients’ goals efficiently, taking a practical approach when resolving issues to take the stress out of their situation.
I specialise in advising individual employees and senior executives on a range of Employment issues including:
- All aspects of termination of employment and negotiating exits
- Settlement agreements
- Disciplinary and grievance matters
- Restrictive covenants and contracts of employment
- Claims in the Employment Tribunal, litigation strategy and settlement
I have a particular interest in discrimination, especially disability discrimination and mental health matters. I’m passionate about mental wellbeing and I’m a trained Peer Supporter with the charity LawCare.
I’m also a mentor to aspiring solicitors with the London Young Lawyers Group and provide 'Pro Bono' advice with local law centres.
What inspired you to get into law?
I wanted to make a career where I could help people in difficult situations.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
Supporting my clients through difficult and stressful periods and helping them feel heard. Reaching a good settlement result for a client is also very satisfying.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
The people. Everyone is very down to earth and supportive. Irwin Mitchell is a big firm with a top reputation but still maintains an authentic and intentional approach in everything it does in its “Expert hand, human touch” approach.
What do you do away from the office?
I love swimming, cooking, eating at restaurants, drinking lots of Nespresso coffee and spending time with family, friends and my little dog.
