Faye Reynolds

Senior Associate

T: 01242 229093


I specialise in employment law and joined Lodders’ employment department in January 2020. I have been qualified as a Solicitor since 2004.

I advise and represent clients nationwide, and have extensive experience of advising both private and public sector employer organisations on all aspects of contentious and non-contentious employment law. I also have considerable experience in advising employee clients on a broad range of employment matters.

The combination of advising both employer and employee clients has given me a well-rounded experience, and enables me to provide pragmatic and cost-effective commercial advice.

The areas of employment law I advise and represent clients upon includes:

  • Advising upon the most appropriate and cost-effective way of exiting employees of all levels of seniority
  • Advising upon restructuring and redundancies.
  • Assistance upon running disciplinary processes.
  • Advice in relation to restrictive covenants.
  • Drafting and advising upon employment documents, such as contracts of employment, post-termination restrictive covenants, employee handbooks, consultancy agreements, director’s service agreements, and settlement agreements.
  • Employment Tribunal proceedings.

I have particular expertise advising upon disability discrimination in employment law pursuant to the Equality Act 2010, and have previously undertaken seminars on this topic. I was an accredited representative of the Law Society Mental Health Review Tribunal Panel, and regularly represented clients in all proceedings before Tribunals under the Mental Health Act 1983. I use this knowledge when advising my clients upon disability issues within the workplace.

I have considerable experience of undertaking my own advocacy in Employment Tribunal hearings nationwide, including at final hearings.

I have worked with and advised companies of all sizes, and my private sector client base has included:

  • British Airways, one of the world’s leading global premium airlines, and;
  • Whitbread Plc, the UK’s largest hospitality company, which owns Premier Inn as well as Beefeater, Brewers Fayre, and Table Table.

I enjoy assisting and advising clients to achieve the best possible outcome appropriate to their circumstances.
