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.

I advise both employers and employees on all aspects of employment law, including disciplinary and grievance issues, redundancy and restructuring, enforcement of restrictive covenants and TUPE.

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.

The advice I sought required a quick turnaround with production of a draft document. This was done with ease. I believe I had value for money in this transaction.
Ms S
Very helpful in a trying time. Extremely happy with your service.
Mr R
Very responsive, timewise. Understood my needs and gave good advice and direction accordingly. Friendly too.
I like that I was listened to and so my experience as a lawyer was understood, although I was not an expert in this area.
Sarah Young was fantastic at supporting us throughout this process. She demonstrated empathy at every step and gave us absolute confidence that she had extensive knowledge in all areas/situations that we had to deal with.
A wonderful service!
All advice given with confidence and professionalism. Outstanding.
