My work involves all areas of employment law.
A Lewis Silkin lawyer born and bred, I trained here before qualifying. In my spare time I like getting back to my country roots and spending weekends in Wiltshire, where I was born.
Typical examples of my work include drafting employment contracts and handbooks, assisting clients with disciplinary and grievance matters and managing Employment Tribunal claims. I enjoy High court litigation and was recently one of a team of five lawyers working on a large-scale arbitration.
My key clients are in particularly tend to be in the financial services, broadcast media, advertising,and retail sectors. I have completed a series of secondments in-house; one at a multi-national bank, another at a large high street fashion retailer, and a third at a London theatre, which gave me a real insight into the kinds of issues (both commercial and legal) that our clients face day-to-day.
The work I do includes managing international projects for multi-national clients. A recent example involved working with international colleagues on a large cross-border compliance project for a technology client.
