My approach is always "commercial". Rather than adopt entrenched positions, my clients' interests and needs are firmly in focus and always influence, at every single stage, my approach and the outcome that I seek to secure for my clients.
I lead the Employment Team at BPE where I specialise in employment law and the wide range of commercial issues and disputes that arise from that relationship.
I act for employers ranging in size (from privately owned to publicly listed companies) and employees. I have obtained vast experience in exit/termination packages for senior directors, shareholders and stakeholders and regularly appear as an advocate in employment tribunals. I’ve also acted successfully in regulatory matters concerning the General Medical Council, HCPC, FCA and the RFU.
I have substantial experience of acting for clients in the High Court on matters including the enforcement of restrictive covenants, obtaining (and resisting) orders for injunctive relief and running to a conclusion the satellite claims that commonly result from these situations.
I frequently act in connection with related shareholder issues and disputes and regularly assist our commercial department with the employment aspects of transactional work.
I am also a qualified and accredited mediator.
I pride myself on the balanced perspective that acting for parties on both sides of the working relationship provides as it enables me to deploy the best strategy in each circumstance.
