"I first met Jessica at MWKL where she was our employment law consultant. She has the ability to cut through the myre, quickly getting to grips with the issue in hand and provide clear, concise, practical, out of the box thinking solutions to UK and International employment law issues. To say she goes the extra mile is a gross understatement, interrupting holidays and sleep patterns to get information and advice in record time.
She is an actual joy to work with partnering with businesses and building relationships to facilitate successful employee relations. By far the most talented and personable employment lawyer I know!"
