With particular experience in the conduct of Employment Tribunal proceedings, I aim to channel legal expertise into clear, practical and strategic advice.
My role involves working with clients to help them shape their strategies and processes as best practice employers. I enjoy building relationships with my clients and helping them to achieve practical solutions.
I have been described as ‘reliable’, ‘pragmatic’ and enjoyable to work with because of my ‘can do’ attitude.
