I joined the Employment department at Bates Wells in January 2014. I act for a wide range of national and international charities, educational establishments, regulators and SMEs as well as individuals.
I have considerable experience supporting clients with TUPE transfers, effecting large scale restructures, redundancies and making changes to terms and conditions.
I regularly assist with complex disciplinary and grievance processes and how these are impacted by safeguarding obligations, parallel criminal proceedings, data protection requirements and public interest disclosures.
I am a skilled employment tribunal advocate and have significant experience as a legal trainer.
This explores unchartered territory by testing the limits of the protection afforded under the Equality Act 2010 and raises a number of important issues which are the subject of intense public debate.
My clients range from household name international charities to regulators and membership bodies. This is a complex and fast changing area of law which is being shaped by the Charity Commission, major funders including DFiD, the #MeToo campaign and mounting public pressure on organisations to respond more effectively.
