    Location: Taunton       Position: Associate

    Team: Dispute Resolution, Employment

    Specialism: Employee rights, Employment advice and consultancy, Employment tribunal, HR advice and consultancy, Redundancy, Settlement Agreements


    I joined the firm in September 2009. I act for both claimants and respondents undertaking contentious and non contentious work, including drafting contracts of employment, staff handbooks and advising on employment policies and procedures. I deal with many types of Employment Tribunal claims including unfair dismissal, unlawful deduction from wages, breach of contract and discrimination.

    I also regularly advise both employers and employees in respect of settlement agreements and enter into negotiation concerning the same.

    I work closely with my clients to achieve the best outcome in view of their needs and priorities. I always aim to deliver clear and pragmatic advice in order to provide solutions that will safeguard them now as well as in the future.

    I make it a priority to get to know my clients/client’s business. I am now based in Taunton but always able to meet with clients in any of our offices or at their preferred locations, as and when required.

    Laura Roper took and understood our instructions and considered the matter fully. Laura was professional at all times and together with Jessica Prescott, her secretary, they were on hand at the latter stages almost daily to assist with following the case through to conclusion.
