I’m an Associate in Michelmores’ Employment team. I provide contentious and non-contentious advice to a range of clients, from NHS Trusts to national retailers.

I have experience in providing advice on day-to-day HR issues, including investigations, grievance and disciplinary processes, contracts and settlement agreements, and have also provided training on such topics.

On the contentious side, I have experience in defending claims brought against organisations for discrimination, unfair dismissal (including constructive dismissal) and wrongful dismissal.

I joined Michelmores on qualification in 2021, having previously trained at a Cheltenham based firm.
