Joanne's bio

Joanne worked as an employment paralegal at an international law firm, before training in the City. She joined the Employment Department at Grant Saw in October 2017 and qualified as a solicitor in November 2017.

Joanne has a wealth of expertise in contentious and litigated matters having worked on a vast portfolio of Employment Tribunal claims. Joanne regularly negotiates settlement agreements on behalf of employers and employees and can advise on all areas of employment law including: unfair dismissal, redundancy, discrimination, harassment, maternity rights, equal pay, whistle blowing, TUPE, breach of contract, and restrictive covenants. Joanne frequently drafts employment contracts (for both junior and senior employers) and company policies.

Outside of work Joanne enjoys to travel and explore new places; the most memorable to date include: Machu Picchu in Peru, the Lost City in Columbia and Angkor Wat in Cambodia. She’s also a bit of a thrill seeker in her spare time, having completed a 134m bungee jump, 15000ft skydive and an open water diving course.
