Senior Associate Solicitor
As a Senior Associate in the employment team at Slater and Gordon in London, I deal with a range of cases on behalf of trade union clients.
Get to know Laura
I'm a specialist employment lawyer with a background in public law.
Due to my experience, I'm able to provide advice and expert representation in all areas of employment law, including discrimination, contractual disputes, equal pay, pension loss, redundancy, TUPE, unfair and wrongful and constructive dismissal, wages claims, group claims and whistleblowing.
I also have experience of advising on internal grievance and disciplinary proceedings, alternative dispute resolution and settlement agreements.
I was going through a difficult case for unfair dismissal with my employer, who were colluding against me at every step of the process. After I went to ACAS and gained the support of Slater and Gordon, in less than 6 weeks the team had prepared all the paperwork, totally understood a very complicated case and resulted in winning the employment tribunal outright. Very supportive, professional and approachable company. Client testimonial for Laura Thompson
I was honoured to be sponsored through the College of Law by the Independent Newspaper after winning a scholarship essay prize in 2000.
I acted for the Lord Chancellor during UNISON’s challenge to employment tribunal fees in the Administrative Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court.
I advised the Department for Education and the Northern Ireland Office as Government lawyer, and have acted in a range of employment tribunal cases for the Ministry of Justice, Home Office and the London Fire Brigade.
I thoroughly enjoy using my broad experience to find resolutions for clients and help them to understand the legal process.
