I am an Associate in the Employment, Immigration and Reward division. I work in three main areas: general employment law; immigration law; and international work.

I hold a Master of Laws in Labour Law awarded by King’s College London. I qualified as a solicitor in England and Wales after completing the Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice and Legal Practice Course.

I have worked for a variety of international companies and government organisations which have operations or wish to set up business in the UK and Europe, including many South Korean organisations. I am a member of the Ministry of Justice (of South Korea)’s legal panel for Korean SMEs to advise those who are expanding to overseas markets, in particular the UK. I am a fluent Korean speaker.


I advise employers across all sectors on the whole range of general employment issues as well as litigation matters: from hiring to firing and everything in-between. My work includes drafting and reviewing contracts and policies, advising on performance issues and terminations, helping clients with restructurings and redundancies, drafting and advising on restrictive covenants, as well as assisting clients with family-friendly issues.

Immigration & Global Mobility

I advise employers across all sectors on the following categories:

  • Sponsor licence applications and sponsors’ duties
  • Sole representative of an overseas business applications
  • Intra Company Visa applications
  • Skilled Worker Visa applications 

International work

I specialise in international work, both advising foreign companies on English legal issues and project managing large cross-jurisdictional matters. Examples of my recent international work include:

  • Managing an employee monitoring project for a global company across 30 jurisdictions
  • Managing a project involving changes to terms and conditions of employment for a global company across 25 jurisdictions
