I am a senior associate specialising in employment law. I work across all sectors at Anthony Collins Solicitors, though predominantly deal with clients in the health and social care sector. I deal largely with defending claims in the employment tribunal and provide commercial, cost-effective advice to clients in a clear and down-to-earth way.
I qualified as a solicitor in 2013 in a busy, hands-on high-street firm, where I acted for both employees and employers. I joined Anthony Collins Solicitors in July 2020. Prior to this, I worked for a large national firm specialising in advising all levels of employees on employment law disputes and claims. Whilst completing my academic qualifications, I operated as a trade union shop steward, and so have first-hand experience of dealing with disciplinary and grievance hearings. I represent clients in the employment tribunal at preliminary and final hearings.
