What I enjoy about my job
When the phone rings I have absolutely no idea the questions that will be asked for which I need to find an appropriate answer. Being an Employment law specialist means that issues can range from holiday calculations to considering sick pay/leave for an employee having elective plastic surgery, to whether TUPE applies to a given situation or if an employee just walked out of the door – did they resign? Being able to advise on the law, explore the potential risks and come up with a solid plan for my client is incredibly satisfying.

How I ‘make it happen’ for my clients
I see myself as an extension of my client’s in-house team. I take time to get to know their business and how they operate, which helps me to find the right solution or range of options for them in any given situation.

A bit about my background
I was admitted as a solicitor in 2003 having completed my training with a medium size commercial firm in Lincoln’s Inn. I arrived at Morgan Russell (the predecessor to Dixcart Legal) at the beginning of 2004 and steadily rose through the ranks. In 2020 I was appointed Managing Director of Dixcart Legal.

What I wish I’d known at the start of my career
I wish I had also studied psychology as so many of the issues I advise on concern personal interactions and reactions to complex situations.

You might not know this about me but…
I once flew to Australia for the weekend to surprise my best friend by jumping out of a box at her birthday party. A long way to go but to see the look on her face – priceless!
