About

I specialise in advising clients on complex and strategic workplace employment and partnership matters including contract negotiations, resolving workplace issues, reorganisations, exits and post-termination disputes.

I have spent over 20 years helping clients to achieve their people-related business aims or sorting out people issues causing them concern or trouble. The area has become increasingly complex over time, is constantly involving and my role is to help clients clearly navigate the issues to achieve the best outcome for them.

I act for a wide range of clients from multi-national corporations who are household names to start-up businesses and directors/senior management, particularly those in the media, technology, financial services and professional services sectors. A common theme in the issues I advise on is that they are personal, often-urgent and sensitive and have to be handled at pace with clients wanting a practical and clear way forward.

I have experience in all aspects of employment law from data protection issues, contract negotiations, business acquisitions and disposals, outsourcing, international and domestic reorganisations to disputes (including whistleblowing and discrimination) and protection of confidential information and post termination restrictions.

When I am not working, I enjoy increasing my wine-knowledge, listening to podcasts on an eclectic range of topics and most sports (except when I am beaten by my children, which sadly seems to be happening more often).
