While most of Andrea’s work is for employers, she also acts for employees and has been involved in complex Tribunal proceedings involving unfair dismissal and discrimination claims as well as the negotiation of settlement agreements.

Andrea is very quick to respond and can be contacted pretty much at any time. She also provides wise counsel and a calm approach. When dealing with tricky parents and managing teachers, Andrea has proved her worth time and time again. Quite simply, I couldn't do my job without knowing that she is there as my legal 'guru' and adviser. Adam King, Thorngrove School
