Lisa Gettins Equity Partner, Employment

I find myself working for businesses across every sector, advising on trade unions, employee relations and TUPE.

I qualified as a solicitor in 1998 and I now head up the Employment Team at BPE. I’m Chartered MCIPD so understand the needs and challenges facing our HR clients, and for clients without dedicated HR support can act as their in-house HR team as well as their in-house employment lawyer.

I work alongside businesses to deliver solutions for them to get the best out of their workforce. This can range from the day to day aspects of employing people, to restructuring the business.  

When a business is going through change, outsourcing or buying another business I give advice on what their responsibilities are to their employees. If things do go wrong, I get involved in complex or high value Employment Tribunal claims and dealing with industrial action. My client base is wide ranging but I do a lot of work with manufacturing, construction, FM and retail clients in particular.


Team Leader, Lisa Gettins is ranked in Band 2 and clients describe her as an "excellent business partner who is highly commercial and sees the big picture".
