Employment Law


Associate Solicitor, My specialisms include employment law and employment law related civil litigation. I have extensive experience in all aspects of employment law but increasingly specialise in contentious work and litigation using my barrister training. I regularly appear as advocate on behalf of both claimants and respondents in Employment Tribunals and also conduct County Court litigation. I have a particular interest in race, disability and sex discrimination issues as well as various forms of contractual dispute.


I qualified as an Air Diver at HMS Vernon, Portsmouth (1978) and then as a Saturation Diver in Marseille, France (1984). Before joining Birkett Long I was a professional North Sea diver and then an employed barrister.


I am a member of the Employment Lawyers Association.

Birkett Long LLP's 'highly professional and committed' practice 'specialises in all areas of employment law and delivers a quality service'. While the lawyers continue to focus on contract drafting and changes, TUPE transfers and court litigation, including discrimination claims, in the construction industry, 2017 saw the team representing employees or defending employers in an increased amount of tribunal claims, as well as receiving more instructions from the education sector. Team lead Martin Hopkins and 'knowledgeable, personable and professional' associate Reggie Lloyd advised Imperial London Hotels on changes to employees' terms and conditions, which were connected to claims brought by one individual under the National Minimum Wage Act and for unfair dismissal and breach-of-whistleblowing protection. Hopkins also defended K E Kents against an unfair dismissal claim, after the claimant was made redundant for gross misconduct in his working methods. Countryside, Spicerhaart Group Services and Acer Landscapes were some of the new clients from 2017. Solicitor Jo McKenna left for Ellisons Solicitors in February 2018, after which Charlotte Holman joined the Basildon office from Backhouse Solicitors.
