Partner and Head of Employment, Leeds


Sally is a Partner in the Employment Group, and heads up the Employment team in Leeds.

As an Employment Lawyer with over 15 years’ experience, Sally works closely with clients to provide straight-forward, practical and commercial advice on a wide variety of employment issues, drawing upon the experience she has gained during two client secondments (one to British Airways Plc and one to Asda Stores Limited).

This includes advice in relation to recruitment, service agreements, executive terminations, discrimination, TUPE and outsourcing, redundancy and change management, restrictive covenants, complex grievance complaints and industrial relations issues.

Sally’s key specialism, however, is employment litigation, acting for private and public companies on a variety of complaints including contractual disputes, claims for unfair dismissal, discrimination, whistleblowing and equal pay. She has also defended claims in the Appellate Courts and has experience of ACAS arbitrations and negotiating settlement agreements.

She regularly gives training and talks and contributes to the press. She is a core member of the Firm’s Retail & Consumer sector group and runs various sector-based events and seminars.
