Joanna joins us with over seven years’ experience in the healthcare sector, having worked at two national healthcare practices. She provides specialist strategic advice on a wide range of contentious and non-contentious HR and employment law issues and has particular expertise of complex discrimination and whistleblowing matters. She will work across a range of sectors but with a particular focus on the health and social care sector and charities. Joanna also takes a keen interest in developing awareness of these subject areas; she is a regular speaker at internal and external seminar events and also delivers training on a variety of sector-specific and general employment law topics.

Joanna commented “I enjoy supporting organisations with their complex and often highly sensitive employee relations matters and helping clients achieve positive outcomes. I also have significant experience of working closely with HR teams to successfully manage complex internal investigations and hearings. I look forward to continuing to support organisations with their employment law challenges as part of the team at Anthony Collins Solicitors, as well as adopting the firm’s strong set of values.”
