As a rockhopper lawyer, I am on call, by telephone and email, to advise employers from a variety of sectors on whatever HR or employee relations issues they need assistance with.

We deal with queries on all topics, including grievances, disciplinaries, sickness absence, family friendly provisions, performance management and TUPE. We also assist our clients in defending Employment Tribunal claims and dealing with data subject access requests, contract and handbook reviews.

I joined the rockhopper team in November 2019, having qualified at a global City firm before moving to a niche employment practice. I spent over 10 years advising employers of all shapes and sizes on all aspects of employment law, as well as negotiating senior executives’ entrance and exit packages and terms and conditions. I have extensive experience of advising both employers and employees in tribunal litigation, including unfair dismissal, complex discrimination, equal pay and whistleblowing claims.

I have two small children and am very excited to have joined the rockhopper team as it provides me with the opportunity to maximize my time with my family, while working for a top law firm with an interesting variety of clients.
