I act for clients in all aspects of Employment and HR issues assisting with many complex discrimination and unfair dismissal cases in the NHS as well as acting for individuals with more basic claims.
I enjoy seeing a case through from the initial claim form being submitted to the full hearing and guiding my clients in the process. I get a real buzz from litigation and I am regularly to be found at the Ashford Employment Tribunal. At the other end of the scale I specialise in reviewing contracts of employment and handbooks as well as drafting compromise agreements for clients.
I have written several articles which have been published in local business newspapers as well as online. I assist my colleagues with training on employment related matters to our clients and at Brachers own seminars as well as venues such as Kent Science Park.
I am a member of the Law Society, the Kent Law Society, the Employment Lawyers’ Association and the Lawyers Christian Fellowship. I attend networking events organised by the Kent Institute of Directors as well as local business networking groups.
I studied Law and German at Bristol University spending a year at the Georg August University in Goettingen, Germany. Following my degree I worked in the licensing team of a large Midlands Law firm for several months before moving to Italy where I spent 5 months learning another language. After completing my Legal Practice Course in Leicester, I joined Brachers, but not before a memorable experience travelling across South America.
My favourite pastime is fine dining and enjoying fine wines (when I can get hold of them)! I am currently learning Spanish to add to my list of languages. I also enjoy travel and am determined to get to as many countries as possible before it’s too late. I am an active member of our local gym and am involved in voluntary work both locally and further afield. I had the privilege of visiting an orphanage in Uganda in April 2010 to help run a children’s camp there during the school holidays.
