Emily trained and qualified at Burges Salmon in Bristol. She spent 10 years practising in its employment team, advising a wide range of clients including those in the defence and financial services sectors. Her experience spans the full breadth of employment law issues. This includes tribunal litigation, business reorganisation, corporate support and the provision of general employment advice. Her strong relationships with clients mean that she tends to be regarded as a key member of the client’s in-house team.
Emily has a particular expertise in Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) issues (TUPE), and is a self-professed ‘TUPE Geek’! She has advised large public sector organisations on TUPE transfer matters, and has litigated complex TUPE-based tribunal cases.
Outside of work, Emily is a supporter of several regional charities and has held a variety of board-level and committee positions. This gives her an additional perspective on business needs, and the challenges of managing people and organisations.
