I advise on a wide range of employment matters with a focus on industrial relations working across Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
Typically my work includes advising employers on day-to-day employment law issues, handling settlement/compromise negotiations, drafting contractual documentation and policies/handbooks, redundancies (both collective and individual), auto-enrolment obligations, and acting for businesses defending Employment Tribunal claims. I also regularly advise clients on the differing requirements between GB and NI on employment law matters.
I support employers and individuals from varying sectors on a wide range of employment issues and also regularly provide bespoke training to clients on a broad range of employment law matters. I often also work with multi-national clients and my practice includes the project management of international advice.
European Works Councils and Trade Unions
I have a particular interest in collective employment issues including pension changes, collective redundancies, outsourcing, trade disputes, statutory recognition requests in the Central Arbitration Committee, threatened strike action and European works councils.
I am also a member of the Lewis Silkin Responsible Business Group and the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Group.
