Julie is an experienced employment solicitor recognised in particular for her work advising clients with whistleblowing and discrimination complaints (most notably sex, maternity and equal pay). She is also very well regarded for advising senior executives on all types of employment-related issues, including contractual issues on joining and leaving organisations, particularly those in the financial services and professional services sectors.

Julie is a trusted adviser to many charities and not-for-profit employers, and has a special interest in advising those in the social enterprise space on what best employment practice looks like.

Julie is also an experienced investigator, commissioned by employers to hear and determine grievances and disciplinary issues.

  • As a result of Julie’s help and advice I was able to resolve a very complicated and long-running situation with my employer and achieved an outcome that was far better than I could have hoped for. I had approached other lawyers who had also been recommended to me at the time but they hadn’t been able to see the sensitivities in the case as well as Julie had, which was essential in resolving the situation.

  • Any employee facing difficulties at work and considering raising a discrimination or whistleblowing complaint will face legal, organisational, financial and emotional hurdles. It is not an easy journey, but having Julie as my counsel and companion on the road really made the difference. Julie understood my objectives, which were ethical and personal, and helped me to best use the levers in my organisation’s procedures and employment laws to achieve an outcome I was happy with. I would encourage anyone considering going down the road of challenging an unsatisfactory status quo in their organisation to get in touch with Julie to understand their employment rights and options on strategy. Julie’s skills and experience will help you make the right choices for you.
