My role

I specialise in contentious employment law work across a range of sectors, acting for clients in employment tribunal proceedings, including claims for unfair and wrongful dismissal and unlawful discrimination. I also advise clients on the strategic implications of the transfer of undertakings legislation (TUPE).
