I trained as a solicitor at Mills & Reeve in Cambridge, and joined the Employment team at Bates Wells as a newly qualified solicitor in September 2012. After taking a sabbatical in 2014 to spend some time travelling and setting up a small business, I returned to the team in June 2016.
I advise predominantly employer clients in relation to a broad range of employment law matters, including terms and conditions of employment, pregnancy and maternity rights, equality and discrimination issues, grievances, disciplinaries, performance management and redundancies. I also undertake a broad range of contentious work on cases in the Employment Tribunal, Employment Appeal Tribunal and Court of Appeal, including in relation to claims for unfair dismissal and discrimination; as well as drafting and negotiating settlement agreements.
This included assisting with an appeal to the Court of Appeal in respect of a novel point of law regarding whether a marriage breakdown falls within the protected category of marital status
