I joined Lewis Silkin in July 2015 as a Paralegal in the Employment, Immigration and Reward department.
Prior to joining the firm I worked as a Crown Court Caseworker in a Criminal Law Department which involved the preparation of Crown Court Cases and advising clients on criminal matters at the police station. I studied Philosophy at the University of Durham before completing the GDL and LPC with the University of Law.
As a Paralegal in the Employment Department I assist partners and other fee earners by providing legal and administrative support on a variety of matters. This includes performing legal research in relation to client queries, the preparation of bundles for Employment Tribunal cases and assisting with a range of employment law issues.
I am a member of the International Group and regularly assist in the running of international projects involving different jurisdictions within the Ius Laboris network. These projects often involve coordinating advice from other jurisdictions in order to create a response to a cross-border query. Other, longer-term, projects involve setting up a helpline for clients to centralise the multi-jurisdictional advice that they require on a regular basis.
