I have 9 years post-qualification experience, having qualified as a lawyer in 2009 after training with Ashurst LLP. I joined the Davenport Lyons employment department in 2011.

I spend 100% of my time working in employment law and advise on all aspects of employment law for both employers and employees, including:

  • employment advice on day to day HR matters;
  • drafting and negotiating employment documentation both employment contracts and settlement agreements;
  • difficult and sensitive employment disputes and Employment Tribunals;
  • employment aspects of corporate transactions, including advice on complex TUPE matters.

In my spare time I enjoy trying out the ever expanding range of restaurants in London.

What is your best legal anecdote?

That would be the time I had to inform IT that I would be carrying out a number of Google searches of, shall we say, 'unusual' terms, not normally used in a professional setting, all in the name of an Employment Tribunal case.

What is your most interesting legal experience?

Defending an injunction in the High Court relating to restrictive covenants and the application of TUPE. We only had a few days notice so it required round the clock preparation, but it was worth it.
