What I love about my job is helping my broad range of clients resolve the problem they bring to me.

  • Advising the board of a large national charity on the management of the relationship between the board and the Senior Executives, and how to dispel the tensions arising from a confused allocation of responsibilities. I was able to draw on my many years acting as a trustee and my experience as chair of a national youth development charity as well as my experience and qualifications as an employment lawyer.
  • Advising the global chief executive of an international investment bank on the terms of his departure.
  • Advising on team moves in the City and amongst professional practices, focusing on the enforceability of restrictive covenants and associated deferred remuneration.
  • Advising on a boardroom dispute and associated shareholder issues arising from the removal of directors, and the forfeiture of a substantial shareholding.
  • Advising members of an LLP on an internal dispute amongst the members, and successfully resolving the issues such that they could continue to work together.
  • Advising Further Education colleges across the country on restructures always achieving efficiency.
  • Advising high profile principals in FE colleges in connection with their employment and its termination, and the adverse media associated with that.
  • Enforcing, on behalf of a professional services firm restrictive covenants and confidentiality clauses by way of injunction in the High Court.
  • Advising a wide range of charities on their day to day employment relations and HR issues around performance, sickness, disciplinarians etc.
  • Advising public sector clients in respect of trade union recognition and negotiation and lawful strike action.
  • I investigated allegations of bullying levelled against the Chief Executive of a National Charity. I was required to interview multiple witnesses prior to reaching a conclusion that the allegations were not warranted. However tensions continue to exist, and I was asked to negotiate a resolution under which the Chief Executive would stand down. I provided further ongoing advice to the organisation in the light of factional criticisms made on social media by a minority group of members.
