Employment Law


Legal Counsel


Sara is highly skilled on strategic employment matters; large-scale redundancies, TUPE transfers, changes to terms and conditions and complex employment tribunal claims.

Sara has practiced for almost 20 years and has therefore advised on most areas of employment law, from the regular day to day HR queries to the most complex 30 day tribunal claim involving a myriad of discrimination claims. Clients feel secure in the knowledge that nothing fazes her. Sara has undertaken numerous mini secondments for clients for the purposes of developing and delivering strategies in relation to key employment law issues and she frequently presents advice to the Board/Senior Leadership team of client organisations.

Sara also has experience of acting on behalf of employees, largely at board level, and Sara has featured as a leading individual in the North West in both Legal 500 and Chambers directories since 2006.
