Jo is a partner in the employment team. Her practice is focussed on the financial and insurance sectors and professional practices, particularly advising law firms and barristers Chambers. As a member of the firm’s Senior Managers and Certification Regime and Senior Insurance Managers Regime specialist groups she has developed a particular expertise in the interaction between employment law and regulatory law, frequently working closely with our specialist regulatory lawyers.

Jo’s work for employers encompasses both non-contentious advisory work and managing and resolving disputes. She has extensive experience successfully supporting clients through complex and high value discrimination and whistleblowing claims. She is valued by clients for her expertise in dealing with tricky employee issues involving strategic implications and sensitive reputational and regulatory concerns and ill-health. Jo has experience in management at Fox Williams where her particular focus is on HR strategy, which gives her an in-depth understanding of the strategic and business context to the management of employee relations.

Jo has strong connections with a large number of senior executives and senior lawyers whom she has advised on job moves, handling grievances and contentious exits, bringing tribunal claims, managing the regulatory implications of accusations of misconduct and the potential constraints imposed by restrictive covenants.
