I am an associate in Lewis Silkin’s Employment, Immigration and Reward division based in Belfast.
I advise local and multinational employers in both the private and public sectors on a wide range of contentious and non-contentious employment matters.
I have extensive experience in supporting clients with complex disciplinary, grievance, absence and performance management processes, TUPE / SPC matters, business reorganisations, data protection compliance and their contractual and statutory obligations.
I regularly act for employers in claims brought in the employment tribunals and civil courts, including complex and sensitive claims for unfair dismissal and discrimination. I have substantial experience in negotiating employee exits via compromise agreements and resolving contentious matters through early conciliation.
Having worked with a range of multinational and UK-wide employers, I have particular expertise in advising clients on the differing requirements between GB and NI, including fair employment monitoring.
