Helping clients to get from where they are to where they want to be with the minimum of employment-related cost and delay. That might mean advice on union negotiations, helping them reconfigure their workforce or resolve a dispute. I need to know the law, but use it to help the client. I give clear and pragmatic advice and do not sit on the fence with what I think. Who wants to read an essay - what they want is my trusted advice.
Resolving a difficult piece of employment litigation with wide ranging adverse consequences without having to pay the other side.
Helping a client through their first outsourcing, allied to a redundancy exercise, by dealing with their employee consultation process without any disruption to the business and no claims.
Enabling a not-for-profit client to reconfigure its wage costs and continue to operate without any job losses.
Social housing providers, manufacturers and airlines.
I have two teenage kids, so my main interests are their transport needs and making sure they do their homework! Once those are out of the way I like family time, seeing friends, sport, cinema and, as people will tell you, food and drink.
