We have further bolstered our growth and continuity plans following the arrival of three senior solicitors to ESP Law.

Jessica English, Jayne Nevins and Charlotte Morris bring further decades of legal experience as we continue to help hundreds of UK firms with complex Employee Relations (ER) matters – especially during the Coronavirus outbreak.

Merseysider Jessica – a former England Hockey goalkeeper – arrives from Widnes-based Community Integrated Care following two years as a solicitor specialising in ER. Her 14-year legal background includes senior solicitor roles at MWR Solicitors and Ellis Whittam.

Jessica added: “It’s a privilege to be able to work with such a dynamic client base and the team ethic at ESPHR has been clear from the outset. Its company culture makes for a place where you feel like you’re an important part of the journey towards becoming the ‘best of breed’ in the marketplace.”

Hailing from south Wales, Jayne arrives with more than 20 years’ experience in employment law and civil litigation – a decade of which was spent at the UK’s leading legal expenses insurance company, DAS.

With further roles at Peninsula and Everett Tomlin Lloyd and Pratt – as well as being a Cardiff and Vale College lecturer in employment law – Jayne wants to help businesses to not only survive a challenging climate, but come out the other side more operationally robust.

“Difficult decisions are being made by organisations on a global scale, so it’s humbling to be able to provide a helping hand to guide them through unprecedented circumstances, and strange new rules and regulations,” she said.

“ESPHR is more than a team, I feel like I’m part of a community. The values held, and the customer service, are both top class – I’m proud to be involved.”

Meanwhile, Shropshire-based Charlotte brings a wealth of complex employment law experience following solicitor roles with Lanyon Bowdler, Ellis Whittam and WH Law LLP as well as previously chairing Future Alliance which promoted the Black Country’s professional sector.

Her 13-year legal career spans a range of sectors including retail, hospitality and education which has involved handling a high caseload of tribunal claims and tackling litigation matters.

Charlotte said: “Starting any new job during lockdown can be daunting and, given the nature of the issues we advise on – as well as the constantly changing guidance on the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme – it has been intense, but it’s a challenge I’m more than ready for.”

Jayne joins on a full-time basis with Jessica and Charlotte job-sharing – something they both did during their time together at Ellis Whittam.
