Overview

I am a Senior Associate specialising in employment law advice and litigation, and work in a team of expert business advisors at Mourant in Jersey.

My practice is focussed on:

  • Employment and discrimination: specialist representation in employment disputes and Tribunal claims, and day to day support on strategic and operational HR matters.
  • Data protection: compliance with both the external and internal aspects of Jersey's data protection framework, in parallel with the introduction of the GDPR across the EU.
  • Regulatory: the crossover between employment and regulatory obligations, including housing and work controls and the regulation of financial services.

 

I joined Mourant Ozannes in 2017, having qualified as an English solicitor and practised employment law since 2012.
