She is recognised as having a pragmatic and commercial approach by her clients who come from a number of sectors including financial services, private equity, fashion and tech.
Clients have said about Emily:
“I found your advice and calmness very reassuring”
“Your support was super helpful… we achieved the best outcome in the end – both financially and non-financially.”
“I have dealt with lawyers before, and the experience was always very neutral at best. Working with you has been very much an experience to the contrary though: many thanks for your valuable advise and counsel. Without your help, expertise and positive attitude, I do not think we could have achieved the good outcome that we now have. A sincere and heartfelt “thank you” for that.”
Emily is a fluent French speaker and advises francophones on UK employment law issues.
Outside of work, Emily enjoys watching films (sci-fi and musicals mostly), eating curries and visiting her family in France.
