Christine says, “I am delighted to have been made an Associate in the Employment Team at Martin Searle Solicitors. I enjoy our campaigning work to prevent discrimination in the workplace. This involves working with employers who want to meet their equality obligations and assisting employees to negotiate fair compensation in their Settlement Agreements. Where this is not possible I run their discrimination claims in the Employment Tribunal to obtain the best possible outcome.”
