Since qualifying as a solicitor in 2004, I have practised at firms in Bath, Bristol and Guildford before joining Scott-Moncrieff and Associates of London. I continue to practise in Bath and the surrounding area where I live with my family.
I studied law and French at Nottingham Law School and Montpellier University, France before completing the LPC at UWE, Bristol and qualifying as a solicitor in 2004.
I have practised in the employment law team of national trade union firm Thompsons as well as firms based in Bath and Bristol.
My focus is always on providing the best possible outcome for my clients and to give professional, personable and cost-effective service.
Specialist Employment Lawyer
As a specialist employment lawyer, I advise and represent clients in all areas of UK employment law. I have developed a particular niche in providing specialist advice regarding settlement agreements for both employers and employees. I have had significant successes in negotiating high value settlements for directors and senior managers as well as more junior employees and workers.
In the event that tribunal proceedings become necessary, I am able to bring considerable litigation experience to bear. I have successfully represented clients in employment tribunals in matters ranging from unfair and constructive dismissal, whistle-blowing, maternity, age, sex and disability discrimination and TUPE.
I have successfully represented clients in the Employment Appeal Tribunal and in professional tribunals including Sport Resolutions, The Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (GMC) and the Nursing and Midwifery Council. I have also represented employers at interviews with the Health and Safety Executive.
I have developed a cost-effective advisory service to employers, where I am able to provide expert advice via a fast-response, cost-effective service on an “as required” basis. I work with a broad range of businesses with particular experience of working with Media and technology firms, engineering and FM companies, companies in the security, retail and care industries, charities and medical professionals.
Whether working with individuals or employers I provide clear, realistic, expert advice and absolute professionalism throughout. I am committed to achieving the best possible outcome with outstanding service and unrivalled value for money.
