I am an associate in the Employment, Immigration and Reward division based in the Dublin Office.

I trained in a leading commercial law firm in Dublin where I spent the majority of my training contract in the employment and litigation departments and assisted with data protection matters.

I am a graduate of Griffith College Dublin where I obtained a Bachelor of Law. I am also currently undertaking an Advanced Diploma in Applied Employment Law with The Honorable Society of King’s Inns.


I deal with all aspects of employment law and the employment relationship, both contentious and non-contentious. This can vary from drafting contracts, employment policies and handbooks for employers; to supporting and advising HR and business managers on workplace disputes such as disciplinary, grievance, bullying and harassment issues, handling settlement negotiations and claims before the Workplace Relations Commission or civil courts.

I also advise on employment issues arising out of corporate mergers and acquisitions.

I have a particular interest in non-adversarial dispute resolution as a means to resolving disputes without need for litigation.

Data & Privacy

I advise employers on data protection compliance including dealing with data subject access requests and data breaches and drafting privacy notices and policies.


I advise on work permit, secondments and global mobility issues and deal regularly with the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation in relation to work permit applications on behalf of employers.
