Sarah joined in 1992 as a Trainee Solicitor with her early training predominantly in Civil Litigation. Sarah now leads the Peace of Mind team within the Employment Law department, focussing on working with employers to ensure they are kept up to date with every aspect of employment law.
Prior to joining the firm, she read Law at Southampton University, where she obtained a (rare) First Class Honours from the Law Society’s Finals Course. During her time studying for her LLB, she was sent for her work placement to the Courts of Justice in London Road and enjoyed it so much she refused to go back. Sarah chose to specialise in Employment Law after her first daughter was born. She was singled out in the 2002-2003 edition of Chambers Guide to the UK Legal Profession, for her work with employment law matters and, in particular, her ‘hard work on behalf of applicants whilst maintaining a balanced practice for individuals and employers’.
Alongside the people she works for and the stories they tell her, what Sarah enjoys most about being an employment lawyer is the ability to do a deal for someone that gets them out of a situation which is not working for either side. Facilitating the ability to move on is the name of the game, although Sarah may say it’s perhaps not a very catchy one!
If you have read Howard Robson or Emma Kemp’s profiles previous to this, you may think that the Employment Team is a very sporty and adrenalin-seeking one, what with Emma’s love of badminton and Howard’s obsession with jumping out of aeroplanes! Sarah however is the exception; as the closest she’s come to sport is watching Take That at Wembley and Lady Gaga at Twickenham!
