Client feedback includes:

“I have worked with Emma over the last 4 years in the capacity of Global Head of HR – Emma has been instrumental in supporting our business through very complex ER issues as well as more strategic changes within the business. I found Emma’s approach to be unique to many other employment lawyers I have interacted with as she really does take the time to understand the business and industry you are operating in to ensure her advice is put into the context of your environment. Emma is very collaborative, practical and her technical knowledge has always been extremely reliable. Aside from Emma’s fantastic support and guidance she is also a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her to people in my HR network and hope we continue to work with each other throughout our careers.”
