Jennifer has over 20 years’ experience as a qualified solicitor of the Senior Courts of England and Wales. Originally from Northumberland in the North-East of England, her clients know that they will receive sound practical advice, which is always value for money.

She regularly gives talks at seminars on recent employment law developments to business clients and also writes articles on changes in employment law for SOLO, the Law Society national magazine for solicitors who run their own practices. She was guest speaker at the 2014 Law Society National Sole Practitioner’s Group Conference in Portsmouth where she gave a talk to other legal practitioners on appointing trainees and growing their business.

Jennifer also represents clients at employment tribunals and is a skilled negotiator. She is a keen runner and sports enthusiast with a grown up family.
