I’m an employment law solicitor – originally from the North West, I settled in the South West in 1992 and after a career in higher education, I qualified as a solicitor in 2005.

I work with businesses and individuals on a wide range of employment and human resources issues including discrimination claims, redundancies, issues on the transfer of businesses, enforcement of post-employment restrictions, sickness issues as well as contract and dismissal complaints.

My clients know they will always receive no-nonsense, practical solutions to all their employment law and human resources problems.

With extensive experience resolving employment disputes, I’m an accomplished negotiator and advocate and represent clients in Employment Tribunals and in the County Court, as well as conducting complicated and high value cases in the High Court and Employment Appeal Tribunal.

I’m a member of the Employment Lawyers Association, Industrial Law Society, Law Society and am regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

I regularly give training, seminars and workshops to clients and local businesses as well as writing on employment law issues in local and national newspapers and magazines. I am also a Trustee of Wiltshire Law Centre.

**No win, no fee arrangements may take the form of a damages based fee agreement or a conditional fee agreement. These arrangements may not be suitable for all cases and are likely to be subject to a detailed assessment of the merits of your case. Whilst we use the term "no win, no fee" it is important to note that you may still have to pay certain costs other than those of your own solicitor even if you lose. These arrangements all differ and your solicitor will need to explain the details to you.
