I am a solicitor with over 18 years experience in employment law. I started my own small practice working from home specialising exclusively in employment law in 2005, and have been running it for over 14 years. My company clients include a significant number of small to medium sized businesses based in the south east, many of which I have advised for several years or more. I am an active member of the Employment Lawyer’s Association.
Many of my employee clients come as personal recommendations which is the best way of finding a solicitor. Due to tightly worded confidentiality clauses which are almost always included in settlement agreements it is not always easy for someone who is suddenly faced with a need for an employment solicitor to source a personal recommendation. Please look at the testimonials on this website especially if you are in this position.
My career in employment law began at Croner Consulting in 1996 where I spent 3 years as an Employment Law Consultant gaining considerable experience in representing employer clients at employment tribunals and dealing with a high volume of queries on employment related issues.
I left Croners in order to qualify as a solicitor at Midlands based firm Brethertons prior to moving south in 2001 and joining the employment team at Cripps in Tunbridge Wells. I worked at Cripps for 4 years gaining considerable experience in a wide range of employment law issues, advising employees at all levels whilst also continuing to advise employer clients.
My first degree is a BSc Hons from King’s College, London University and following that I completed a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) at Durham University which has stood me in good stead for running my own business. Later I was awarded a Commendation in the Post Graduate Diploma in Law from De Montfort University in Leicester.
