I am a Senior Associate in the Employment, Immigration and Reward division.
In my role at Lewis Silkin, I support both employers and employees from all industry sectors on a wide range of day-to-day employment issues. These include contract and policy drafting and review, the negotiation and drafting of settlement agreements and advising on best HR practices.
