I advise on a wide range of employment law issues.

I have spent my entire legal career with Lewis Silkin, from paralegal to trainee to associate.


I advise employers on the whole range of general employment issues (such as reviewing policies, advising on terminations and restructurings, and responding to tribunal claims).

I am an experienced litigator. I regularly assist clients with high value litigation, often involving complex and sensitive discrimination claims and sometimes involving cross-border issues. I also frequently advise clients on high court litigation matters, usually in relation to restrictive covenants, garden leave and confidential information. I have also acted for a client in a large scale arbitration.

I am also part of the Investigations and Regulatory group, with a focus on conducting investigations for clients in respect of serious allegations of wrongdoing.

My client base is broad, and includes various organisations across the professional and financial services sectors as well as law firms.

Partnerships & LLPs

I have experience of advising clients that are partnerships and LLPS, including law firms and professional service firms. I have acted for these clients in relation to general employment law queries and also in high value litigation and arbitration. Additionally I have experience in advising on fiduciary obligations and any breaches of these obligations, as well as resolving disputes between members.
