Vaishali is a specialist employment law solicitor with over 12 years’ experience.

Her personable approach and down-to-earth attitude enables her to clearly explain the legal complexities of all aspects of employment law. She is an excellent negotiator, a skill she puts to good use when consulting on termination packages and undertaking mediation.

A confident litigator, Vaishali deals with all aspects of employment law ranging from tribunal claims for unfair dismissal and breach of contract to more complex claims of TUPE, Working Time Regulations and discrimination. She also understands the complexities of the employer-employee relationship and has a clear ability to look at the bigger picture.

Vaishali is responsible for supervising and training unqualified members of the team. 

She comments: “I am experienced in working with clients on challenging negotiations and can support them with their employment issues, help to find solutions to problems and help them achieve their goals, whether straightforward or not.

I explain complex employment law issues in straight-forward language and provide clients with tailored, comprehensive advice to ensure they achieve their commercial aim without unexpected and costly repercussions. This allows my clients to focus on what they do best.”

At the beginning of 2019 Vaishali was appointed Associate Director. Her skills and fresh ideas will help to shape the future of the firm and its success. 

Client testimonial: “Thank you for a hassle free service, you were very good to deal with. Alex and Vaishali were very good and thorough – great outcome!!”
