Senior Employment Solicitor | Aberdeen
Lesley gained her LLB (Hons) and Diploma in Legal Practice from the University of Aberdeen, qualifiying as a solicitor in May 2011. During her legal traineeship, Lesley developed an early interest in employment law and continued to specialise in this upon qualification. Lesley trained and spent her first years post qualification at a well-regarded Aberdeen firm, with her work being primarily employer led with a focus on offshore oil and gas and marine clients enabling her to gain considerable experience in dealing with jurisdictional, marine and expatriate employment issues. Lesley thereafter moved to Law at Work Empire in the Summer of 2013.
With experience across a wealth of sectors, including retail, oil and gas, marine, care, construction and agriculture and a keen eye for detail, Lesley provides strategic and pragmatic advice on a breadth of employment law matters including niche areas such as employment status, restrictive covenant agreements, employee data protection issues and the employment law considerations in mergers and acquisitions.
