"From day 1 I knew Emma was on my side, I wasn’t just another fee.
She listened, hard. Her communication was always timely and thorough and she always operated with upmost integrity both with me, but also the retailer I had just exited.
Couple that with a clearly defined legal strategy she will deliver the best for you. She delivers the best because she cares, and she plans and she is absolutely determined to fight for what you deserve.
I first made contact with Emma as she had been recommended to me by an HR colleague at another of the big 4 retailers (having dealt with her from the other side), I was told that she was the best he had ever dealt with. It was the best piece of advice I have been given and would highly recommend her to anyone, at whatever level, who needs representation after being unfairly dismissed."
Emma brings a bright and engaging manner into her work. Her knowledge of the market place was first class and her approach was pragmatic, supportive and directional without being overbearing. I have no hesitation in recommending Emma again.

Emma’s approach is highly practical. More importantly she is an excellent negotiator, robust and direct but with an ability to maintain open and friendly channels of communication.
