I am a specialist Employment Solicitor, who advises both employers and employees on the complex issues in Employment Law. I have specialised in Employment Law for over 10 years.
For employers, I can advise on a wide range of issues including the drafting of contracts, company handbooks, employment issues on company takeovers and mergers, day to day employment issues, director issues, employment law issues on insolvency, restrictive covenants and enforcement, and employment tribunal and other disputes, including defending claims relating to Unfair Dismissal, Discrimination, and Breach of Contract. My work for employers also extends to the provision of training on specific employment law subjects, which has included compliance with discrimination legislation, workplace monitoring, family friendly employment law issues, managing dismissal, and redundancy and re-organisation.
For employees, I am able to advice on contracts of employment, director advice, and the bringing of all claims in the employment tribunal and court system, including Unfair Dismissal, Discrimination claims and matters relating to the enforcement of employee's employment rights.
I joined in QSHC 2010 having previously been a Partner at a local firm and head of their employment department.
From 2008 to 2010, I was the Chairman of the Lawnet Employment Group, a national group of employment solicitors, who, as solicitors within Lawnet member firms, shared resources on training, knowledge, and the practice of employment law.
Since September 2010, I have been passing on my knowledge in employment law matters to legal executives in training, lecturing in Employment Law and Employment Practice, on the Institute of Legal Executives Level 3 Course for Northbrook College.
Outside of work I maintain a keen interest in all things football related!
