Client/professional quotes:

Quotes:

The Legal 500 2018 described the employment team as “always offering reasoned and appropriate advice“.

The Chambers UK 2019 Guide described the Employment team as providing a “dependable, friendly service that’s always willing to go the extra mile in difficult situations.” A client noted: “Their advice has always been timely. They’re very pragmatic as well, and give detailed advice.”

“Catherine’s approach is to listen, assimilate what she hears and then provide a simple summary of the issue. Her steady and understated assessment of all situations we throw at her has been handled so well we have felt reassured at every step. Her advice and guidance has enabled us to implement new policies and guidelines around employment documentation and procedures”.
