I am a senior solicitor for our law firm ESP Law, which involves the provision of advice and support on a full range of employment issues to our customers. I also run mock tribunal cases, write articles, and deliver training on a variety of topics as well as coordinate the legal team’s ‘knowledge share sessions’, helping to ensure we are always up to date with the latest developments.
I have been a solicitor for nearly 17 years, having trained with a leading national firm. I am also an experienced advocate, having practised criminal law at a high level for several years, which can come in handy when there are queries about employees who get into a spot of bother!
I enjoy the fantastic relationships we can establish with our customers, the real ability to understand their business and how they like to work – as well as the uncertainty and fast pace. You never know what may come up from one day to the next!
Because of the way in which we operate, I really value the internal team I work with. We all truly support each other and recognise individual strengths. There is a real feeling of collaboration, respect and a lack of competitiveness, which makes for a lovely environment.
We have some fantastic partners already, but if I was pressed to answer, I would have to say an organisation which works to promote health and mental wellbeing. I am passionate about the importance of general mental wellbeing both for adults and children. I would also love to work with more charities such as Mind or the National Autistic Society, together with homelessness and addiction charities.
Providing first-class support from a commercial yet empathetic perspective, and always being approachable and going the extra mile. I hope that I manage to achieve this!
Continue to build upon the relationships that we have and to support our customers so they can achieve their goals.
Can you ask me this again after we have more certainty about issues such as Brexit?!
Alongside spending time with my family, theatre is my real passion. I am often found rehearsing, performing, helping behind the scenes, or taking on the role of house manager. I also love to run and am currently in training for the Berlin Marathon.
