I have nearly 10 years’ experience in the field of employment law, most recently as an Associate at a Top 100 firm. I provide clear and strategic advice to both individuals and business clients, covering the whole range of employment issues from the early stages of dispute resolution right through to Tribunal proceedings.

My passion is driven by my ability to assist and support clients through what can be a challenging time. I always take the time to listen and properly understand my clients’ needs, offering pragmatic advice and establishing strong professional relationships. Clients value that I am a calm and effective negotiator with an eye for detail.
