Associate in the employment team

My role

I am an associate solicitor 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.

My experience

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.

My specialisms

  • Complex employment tribunal proceedings
  • Negotiated exits and settlement agreements
  • Internal processes (disciplinary and grievances)
  • Redundancy advice
  • Employment law aspects of Covid-19
