  • During her training Laura undertook seats in employment, dispute resolution and corporate, and has a strong interest in developing her skillset in employment
  • She has gained experience in this area successfully advising a range of clients on matters such as redundancy and disciplinary processes, as well as advising on TUPE transfers and constructive unfair dismissal claims since qualifying

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.”
