Summary

An employment legal counsel with measured passion for employment law. Working with a diverse pool of businesses, I advise on all aspects of employment law: variation of employee contracts, grievance, dismissals, leave, discrimination, compromise agreements and redundancy.

Working closely with business owners and HR managers, I advise on tribunal matters, often preparing and filing ET3 defence on behalf of respondent (the business). Opportunity to frequently represent both claimants (employees) and respondent accords me with formidable experience in case management, with clinical apt to view and address employment disputes. As former in-house legal counsel for a reputable investment company, I am sufficiently versed with the needs and constraints of business.

A registered lawyer with the FA, I habitually provide advice and representation on all aspects of sports law. Working in close proximity with football directors and academy managers, I advise on transfer of both professional and youth players within the Premier League, Championship and the lower leagues. I additionally advise and draft tripartite agreements on behalf of club, and advise players on disciplinary matters before FA and club.
