Sarah Lee Partner, Employment

My working day is very varied and can involve anything from drafting restrictive covenants, which will protect a client’s business, to advising charities, healthcare or hospitality clients on messy grievance and disciplinary issues.

I qualified as a solicitor in 2004 after studying French and German at Cambridge and then a Postgrad Diploma in Law at Nottingham, followed by the Legal Practice Course. I support clients ranging from SMEs to PLCs with day-to-day HR issues as well as with challenges such as reorganisations and complex employment tribunal claims, where I enjoy doing advocacy.

I advise clients on the best way to achieve the outcome they’re looking for, rather than simply telling them what the law says. Every working day is different and can involve anything from advising charity, healthcare or hospitality clients on complicated or difficult grievance and disciplinary issues to drafting restrictive covenants to protect a client’s business. I also have a lot of experience in family-friendly rights, discrimination and regulatory areas, including DBS checks and data protection.


Clients have described Sarah as 'consistent in her utterly professional approach, providing clear, thorough and concise advice', according to Legal 500, 2018
