Danielle heads our Immigration practice. She also advises on all aspects of contentious and non-contentious Employment law.
Danielle advises a wide range of corporate and individual clients on immigration and nationality law including sponsor licence applications, highly skilled (Tier 1) and skilled (Tier 2) migrant applications under the point based system and European free movement applications.
Danielle has written a number of articles for the Law Society Gazette and Tottel’s Journal of Immigration Asylum and Nationality and is an active member of the Immigration Law Practitioners Association.
Danielle’s employment experience includes advising employers with challenging employment situations; providing creative and practical advice to reflect their priorities and appetite for risk.
Danielle handles the complete range of advice necessary to support the firm’s senior executive practice and regularly advises employees facing issues relating to maternity leave and discrimination law as well as redundancy, whistleblowing and potentially unfair dismissal. Danielle advises a European stock exchange on day to day employment issues as well as complex disputes with senior employees.
Danielle acts for many of our restaurant clients in relation to their contentious and non-contentious advice. She also advises individuals accused of misconduct by banks in cases involving alleged financial misconduct and market manipulation.
Danielle has particular experience in employment tribunal litigation, acting for both employers defending claims and employees bringing them. Clients benefit from her ability to see the opponent’s litigation strategy from the other perspective. Highlights include acting for an individual in successfully bringing a claim for constructive unfair dismissal against a major multinational consumer goods business and acting for a senior individual in an unfair dismissal claim against a global bank.
Danielle’s experience in employment and immigration law enables her to advise employers on issues that concern both areas of the law such as recruitment programmes including foreign migrants and termination of employment when an employees’ status is uncertain.
