Heather, employment partner, has dedicated her 15 year career to advising schools and academies. She leads the education team's employment practice.

Her pragmatic style and experience as an Academy Governor herself means she works in partnership with boards and leadership teams to manage strategically and sensitively the most high stakes of cases. 

Her areas of expertise include high profile employment matters, large scale restructures, managing industrial action, claims of sexual harassment against senior staff, complex race discrimination tribunal claims and advising on complex TUPE outsourcings (including the pensions implications).
