My role

I am a senior associate in the pensions and employment team. I work across all of our sectors specialising in strategic advice for health and social care providers and housing organisations. I advise on all aspects of employment law and have a particular interest in supporting clients with complex technical issues providing practical and solution-focused advice.


My experience

I have substantial experience in providing complex technical advice regularly helping clients with issues around the application of TUPE; the National Minimum Wage; Working Time Regulations;  restructures and changes to terms and conditions and complex whistleblowing matters. I enjoy working with clients on successfully implementing new working arrangements, and my recent experience includes supporting pay restructures and advising on complex holiday pay and rest break arrangements.
