About Meredith

I am a skilled and versatile employment lawyer, with wide-ranging experience of advising businesses and individuals on all complex employment law related matters. I have over 20 years’ experience.

I advise businesses, ranging from a major PLC in the transport sector, to owner managed businesses on all employment law related matters, and the employment law aspects of commercial acquisitions and disposals.

Highlights of 2022: Representing and advising a national transport operator during threatened industrial action and pay dispute, and representing a London-based casino chain at an employment tribunal.

I also advise individuals including those at director and executive level, in complex claims specialising in discrimination, and whistleblowing. A highlight of 2022 was recovering a substantial amount for a client in the financial services sector. Clients value my plain talking, common sense, and empathetic approach to employment advice and disputes.

I am also an experienced tribunal advocate, and provide employment law training to clients and the wider business community.

Areas of expertise include (non-exhaustive list):

Drafting contracts of employment, director’s service agreements, employee handbooks/policies, Drafting and advising on the application of dismissal, disciplinary and grievance procedures, Advising on the legal aspects of conduct and performance dismissals, Transfer of undertakings (TUPE), and the employment law aspects of business sales and purchases, Advising on best practice to avoid employment tribunal claims, Collective consultation and redundancy/industrial action, Advising on all aspects of discrimination and whistleblowing legislation and claims, International extra-territorial employment disputes, Advice on LLP membership/partnership disputes and associated worker and employee status, and Variation of Contract.

Notable transactions:

Advising on a large pension fund dispute for the director of a major bank, Negotiating the exit package for the director of a premiership football club, Advising a national transport company on the employment status of its drivers, Advising a major PLC on the employment aspects of a business acquisition, Acting for a US based research company on the employment aspects of setting up a UK branch office, and Advising a sea freight company on the implications of site closure.

Should your business have any specific requirements, then do not hesitate to contact me via Urbano or to see if I can assist.

Personal Interests

Creative pursuits include writing creatively (novels and comedy), fine-art (painting), making music, acting and voiceover. I am also a keen amateur runner and birder, and manage to combine this with a love of the outdoors in my home in Northwest Essex.
