Samantha qualified as a solicitor in 2013 and joined BDBF in April 2016.
Since qualifying, Samantha has gained a wide range of litigation experience, acting for both employees and employees in industries including construction, media, property, market research and science and technology in both the Employment Tribunal and Employment Appeal Tribunal. Samantha has successfully represented both employees and employers in relation to claims for unfair dismissal, discrimination and harassment, whistleblowing, unlawful deduction of wages, breach of contract, restrictive covenants and bonus disputes.
Previous experience of acting on behalf of both parties means that she has a good insight into her opponents’ weaknesses, which she can use to her client’s advantage.
Samantha also regularly advises individuals and businesses on a wide range of employment issues including redundancy, disciplinary, grievance and capability procedures, TUPE, restrictive covenants, contractual disputes and negotiated exits (including negotiating settlement agreements). In addition, Samantha advises employers on avoiding conflict at work as well as drafting staff policy documents, contracts and handbooks, and has previously acted as an outsourced HR representative for a client.
Samantha is a member of the Employment Lawyers Association.
Outside of work Samantha enjoys reading, socialising with friends, adrenaline sports such as bungee jumping and sky diving as well as supporting Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.
