Partner in the employment and pensions team
As a partner in the employment and pensions team, I lead the firms work in the health and social care sector. I love being given challenging situations to resolve and identifying commercial solutions. I mainly work with clients in the health and social care and social housing sector.
I help people unblock difficult employment issues be that with key employees or trade unions. I enjoy helping clients with managing redundancy or contract change programmes to manage risk whilst maintaining employee relations. My TUPE and National Minimum Wage experience is highly regarded by clients. As part of a wider health and social care team I also input on wider commercial and regulatory issues.
