As head of employment team, I work with clients to achieve their strategic and commercial objectives within the workplace.
I enjoy interacting with others and advising many different types of businesses and people on the challenges of employment law. I will always take time to listen, relate and provide feedback and advice, no matter how busy I am.
One of the best compliments I’ve received is: “Highly tenacious while approachable Erica has proved to be an incredibly knowledgeable employment law specialist. Erica’s ability to retain focus, professionalism and never lose sight of the result make her my go to expert”.
