Samantha specialises in both contentious and non-contentious employment law matters across the firm. She works closely with our healthcare and private sector clients, offering bespoke, practical and proactive advice. Samantha has experience advising on a wide range of issues including disciplinaries and grievances, employment tribunal claims, discrimination, policies and procedures, TUPE and other general day-to-day HR matters. 

Samantha first started her legal career with a claimant focus, developing a good understanding of the mindset and tactics of individuals when bringing claims within the Employment Tribunal. This has been beneficial when working alongside businesses and Trusts in defending claims, and ultimately formulating case strategy.
