GROUP HR DIRECTOR
We have worked closely with Caroline for a number of years and are extremely grateful to work with someone with such passion, dedication and professionalism. Caroline is approachable and truly understands the needs of her clients. The advice and support she provides is outstanding and working with her is an absolute pleasure.
OWNER OF A LARGE RECRUITMENT COMPANY
Caroline has run a number of High Court cases for our Group and obtained injunctions to protect our business. I would highly recommend Caroline as a litigator – she is responsive, clear and gets results.
Caroline has been absolutely amazing from start to finish. She guided me through the legal process, scheduled calls to make sure I understood my options and to go through any legal correspondence point by point.
While she was convinced of the strength of my case and supported me throughout, she made sure I was aware of how the respondent might try to pick apart my claim of unfair dismissal - she was clear, honest and never gave me unrealistic expectations. In the end, thanks to her work over many months, my employer agreed to settle.
As my legal fees were covered by an insurance company, Caroline had to jump through many hoops, prompt my insurer on many occasions and deal with mounds of extra paperwork.
Caroline is everything a solicitor should be: supportive, efficient, extremely knowledgeable and competent, a great communicator and strategist. I will be eternally grateful for her advice and help. Without her I never would have been able to navigate the legal system, been able to handle the stress of fighting for my rights or even been fully aware of my rights as an employee faced with redundancy without consultation while on maternity leave.
OWNER DIRECTOR, HEALTHCARE SERVICES GROUP
