Professional support lawyer

Professional support lawyer in the pensions and employment team

My role

I am a professional support lawyer in the pensions and employment team. I work with all sectors to ensure our clients receive current, practical and sector-specific knowledge of developments; be they in case law or legislation. In addition, I manage the team’s knowledge management system to facilitate the provision of timely, sector-specific and client-focused advice.

My experience

I qualified as an employment lawyer in a large international law firm and since then have gained substantial experience working as a Professional Support Lawyer in several firms prior to joining Anthony Collins Solicitors. I particularly enjoy breaking down complex legal decisions or legislation and applying their ramifications to our clients’ situations. We do this through regular legal updates, bespoke and more generic training events and specific products.

My specialisms

  • Employment law
  • Pensions law
