Nina specialises in employment law. She qualified in 2007 and advises clients on a broad range of contentious and non-contentious matters
Nina advises clients in a variety of sectors. She primarily advises individuals in non-contentious matters (for example advising on Executive Service Agreements and Settlement Agreements including in connection with high level negotiated exits) and a number of contentious matters (for example contractual disputes, unfair dismissals, TUPE matters, and discrimination claims).
She also assists SME clients with day-to-day HR queries, dealing with business-wide projects such as restructuring, redundancies and advising on contractual issues such as bonus arrangements and restrictive covenants. She also regularly advises on settlement negotiations.
I'd like to take the opportunity to say a huge thank you to you for your assistance in resolving the matter in my favour. Your calm, professional yet determined approach assured me that I had the best person and firm representing me, with the right experience to ensure I left with the best package possible. Wish you all the best for the future and will certainly recommend you to friends and family.
Nina was recommended to me by a friend who suggested I needed a “good lawyer” based on the inefficient exit process from my previous employer.
From the outset nothing was too much trouble and put me at ease in what was a challenging time. Nina was both pragmatic and professional and was able to fully negotiate my release from my contract, providing me with reputational protection in the market place and also ensure that there was clarity on both sides as to the restrictive covenants in place. The negotiation of these was done expediently and provided me clear guidance on how I could engage moving forward with new opportunities and gave me the confidence that my career had not been damaged by my former employer.
