Rupert advises on the full range of employment issues and is a trusted adviser to many large companies. He gives practical advice based on his knowledge of employee/industrial relations as well as employment law. His focus and passion is on giving practical, easy to understand advice to employers, enabling them to do the right thing in the first place and to get on with running their businesses. This makes good HR sense and it helps keep his clients out of the employment tribunal.

Solicitor

Alexandra is an experienced employment solicitor who has been advising employers for over 15 years.

Alexandra predominantly advises employers although she also acts for senior employees in settlement agreement negotiations.

Alexandra has particular experience in the employment aspects of the sale and restructuring of businesses relating to TUPE and collective redundancies.

Alexandra is passionate about employment law and HR training and keeps a close eye on developments in employment law, writing our updates and regular bulletins.
