I joined Porter Dodson in July 2015 and was promoted to Associate in May 2017. I now specialise in employment law but have a background in corporate transactions and commercial law.
One of my first questions for my clients is usually ‘what do you want to achieve’? By knowing what you are looking for, I can focus on finding a solution and providing advice which helps you to achieve your aims.
If your objectives aren’t realistic, I ensure that you understand why and explore the alternatives. My clients appreciate my honest, pragmatic advice.
I have also been heavily involved in several primary care initiatives, acting for numerous GP surgeries in exploring alternative ways of working, including through integration with secondary care providers. I continue to manage such matters alongside my employment law practice.
Sarah Young was incredibly helpful, personable and took temporary charge of the case at a critical moment. She carefully thought out a solution to the issues at hand and deployed this with skill and expertise despite the delicacy of the situation, helping ensure an optimal outcome. I was delighted to work with Sarah and she displayed great empathy and understanding, both during the case and afterwards. I would highly recommend Sarah.
