EUROPEAN OD MANAGER, MANUFACTURING
I am so glad that I have you to advise and guide us, a really safe pair of hands; I find your advice practical and clear to understand. You are concise and really understand our business which is reflected in the support you provide.
GLOBAL HR DIRECTOR, AVIATION
Suki, you have advised our organisation for over 15 years, you have always demonstrated attention to detail and have clearly explained our options and helped us to understand and manage and mitigate risks; we are so proud to have you as our extended team.
CEO OF CONSULTANCY COMPANY
As a senior executive I was looking for an employment lawyer who would really believed in me and my case and would fight my corner, well that is exactly what I got with Suki. I was honoured to have her represent me in a highly sensitive matter which she undertook with exemplary professionalism and I granted her the title “Ironknickers” as a compliment as to how she fought for me and cleared my name. Suki was a pleasure to work and I would highly recommend her.
HRD LOGISTICS COMPANY
I have worked with Suki on transactional matters undertaking TUPE outsourcing and she worked really well as part of our wider team. She undertook reviews of the Service Level Agreement, made necessary changes to protect our interests and went beyond and was creative in some of the indemnities she negotiated and drafted. I would recommend Suki for TUPE and associated transactional support.
Thank you so much for all your support over these last few months. You have honestly been, quite frankly, nothing short of amazing. I will always recommend you most highly to others. I feel so lucky to have been able to engage an expert like you; you made such a negative experience with my employer into something very positive experience for me.
CEO MULTI-SITE CARE HOME
Suki has undertaken employment and HR work for our organisation for over 15 years. She has supported our HR managers in all round issues relating to people. She explains matters in simple terms and does not sit on the fence with her advice. She recently handled a very complex disciplinary and grievance brought by two of our employees and as a result we were able to remove them from our business quickly and with little exposure. Suki really focuses on achieving the desired outcome for her clients and sees matters through the client’s eyes. A great lawyer who we would not be without.
DIRECTOR, PROPERTY COMPANY
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for your help in us reaching a settlement. It is never easy picking up a case halfway through but your excellent work made this a seamless transition. We all agree that instructing you was the best decision we made on this case and you will be our first port of call for all employment advice going forward. I look forward to working with you again.
Thank you for helping me with this and bringing this to a very amicable solution and with your help, support, guidance and advice and your calm demeanour, helped to bring this hard negotiation to an end to my satisfaction. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone for your services in future. You are worth every penny.
