I am a partner and head of the Employment team at Lodders.
I act for employers of various shapes and sizes, from start-ups to large private companies, on a wide range of employment issues, including contracts of employment, directors’ service contracts, HR policies and procedures, disciplinary issues, redundancies and reorganisations, senior executive terminations, settlement agreements and Tribunal claims. I help businesses to manage relationships with Trade Unions, Works Councils, and European Works Councils.
My clients also include directors and senior employees.
I regularly act as a Tribunal advocate – with recent successes in both the Employment Tribunal and Employment Appeal Tribunal – and provide a range of employment law and HR training programmes for managers and HR professionals.
I chair the Board of Governors at Solihull School.
I am based in Stratford upon Avon
