TESTIMONIALS

employment law

Emma was recommended to me for an employment issue I had and when I spoke to her for the first time her professionalism and pragmatism made me confident she would get the right result. It was clear she understood the issue from both sides, and she worked tirelessly through the constantly shifting goalposts whilst taking the time to ensure I was informed and coping emotionally at a difficult time. I’d absolutely recommend her.

As a corporate lawyer I have worked with Ann-Marie on a number of joint client projects. She is focused on achieving the client aims, technically excellent and has a very high level of business acumen. Ann-Marie is a pleasure to work with and I cannot recommend her highly enough.

TESTIMONIALS

I wanted to thank you very much for everything you did for us. It was a pretty traumatic process for us to deal with and we were absolutely right to appoint you, as professionals, to guide us and to be safe in the knowledge that we were doing things ‘properly’. I felt so well supported all the way through, particularly during the disciplinary hearing itself and I thank Emma for that. Your advice was thorough and easy to follow. The staff also wanted to thank Beth for the work she did and how she took such great care explaining the process, taking their witness statements and really listening to them, they felt (in their own words) that she really went ‘above and beyond’ and we share that view too.

Highly recommended. Emma was really supportive and knowledgeable at a very stressful time for me 2 years ago. She helped me move on and I’ve not looked back since. Thank you.
