Before joining Martin Searle Solicitors, I worked for a commercial law firm in Tunbridge Wells and more recently as an in-house legal adviser for a wholesale jewellery company. I was also a volunteer specialist.
Disputes concerning employment status and restrictive covenants
Resolving bonus disputes
Negligent/defamatory employment references.
I represent directors, employees and employers. I pride myself on providing pragmatic advice to best achieve my clients’ desired outcome.
I graduated from Central Sussex College with a Distinction in Business & Finance and from Brunel University with a Degree in Law. I later went on to complete the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law in Guildford. I qualified in August 2005 and I am a member of the Employment Lawyers Association.
As well as providing advice on Employment Law issues, I have experience in dealing with a range of legal matters, to include contractual disputes, building disputes, debt actions, Landlord and Tenant disputes, boundary disputes and general litigation claims.
In addition, I have worked at a senior level within our family business, managing staff and dealing with all contractual and legal obligations.
I have a life too
I enjoy jogging, spin classes and horse riding. I also enjoy trips out to the theatre and regularly take my little girls out to see new shows. Family time is important to me as is socialising with my friends and so I strive to achieve a good work-life balance.
