I am a solicitor in the Employment team based in the City Centre office.
I specialise in employment and discrimination law, and I am passionate about tackling inequality and have experience of advising and representing clients in claims involving discrimination, harassment and victimisation in the workplace.
I work on cases involving a wide range of issues, including maternity and pregnancy discrimination, disability discrimination, sex and race discrimination, unfair dismissal, victimisation and whistleblowing. I also regularly advise on settlement agreements.
I get the most satisfaction from cases where I help people realise that they have been treated unfairly and it wasn’t their fault so they can move on from what’s happened.
I’m a governor for Christ Church CE Primary School in Birkenhead where I chair the school’s finance and resource committee.
Outside of work, I enjoy collecting vinyl records, travelling to faraway places and good books.
