Get to know Jo

I've been practising employment law for 20 years, in private practice and for Government. Throughout my time as a solicitor, I've become an employment law specialist, litigator and mediator. I’ve represented clients in the Employment Appeal Tribunal, the High Court, and indeed at the European Courts. I've worked extensively with clients providing advice and guidance on the interpretation of UK and EU law.

My interests and expertise are broad. I have a personal specialism in discrimination law, collective consultation, redundancy and FCA conduct rule claims.

Career highlights

The biggest achievement so far was representing a group of employees who were put onto Personal Improvement Plans because their attendance at work was low while they had cancer treatment. We won this claim, improving the workplace, gaining a financial award for each person discriminated against, and having the employer apologise and put improved processes in place going forward. I felt that we’d achieved something long-lasting and positive.

I’m also proud to have defended a client in regards to FCA rules and regulations, securing a positive outcome for him in a highly specialised environment.

Recognition

I'm a Principal Lawyer and Head of the Practice in employment and have an average Trust Pilot rating of 5 stars. You'll see me regularly on broadcast media and in the news when issues of legal importance come up. I also feature on Breast Cancer Now’s Facebook live series.

The extra mile

I'm a Trustee Director of Marsha Phoenix House which is a charity providing housing and support to vulnerable homeless young women in South London.

I provide support and training to Breast Cancer Now.

I am a member of the Employment Law Association and the EU ELA.
