A leading specialist employment lawyer has joined South coast solicitors Steele Raymond to head up their experienced Employment Team.
With more than 20 years’ experience, Deborah has significant employment law knowledge acting for employers ranging in size from international corporates and FTSE 100 companies through to SMEs, across a variety of both private and public industry sectors.
Deborah is often called upon to give significant HR as well as employment law input at both strategic and practical levels, working alongside Boards, senior management, HR teams and owner-managers to achieve commercial, cultural and legal objectives across the full life cycle of the employment relationship.
Speaking on her appointment, Deborah said:
“Steele Raymond has an excellent reputation in employment law, so the move was an obvious choice for me. I’m excited to have joined such an experienced team. The growth of the firm in recent years has been exceptional and I’m looking forward to playing a part in the vision and expansion going forward.”
Deborah joins Steele Raymond from a London-based firm and brings a wealth of practical experience across a variety of sectors including construction, retail and education.
“Employers are experiencing challenges to their businesses like never before. Business owners will need to be taking pragmatic steps to evolve the way they operate in the future and the impact this will have on their employees.”
“Many businesses will not return to the way they were before the pandemic and must therefore prepare themselves to support their employees’ needs and establish flexible business structures for a new way of working in the future.”
“Employees are increasingly aware of their rights (which are constantly evolving and often at real speed), so it is now more important than ever to manage these carefully and efficiently.”
Peter Rolph, Managing Partner at Steele Raymond, said:
“Deborah is a valuable addition to head up our Employment Law Team and we are delighted to have her on board. Her track-record of handling complex employment law issues and disputes in a commercially astute manner will provide much-needed reassurance to our clients in these turbulent times. Her appointment very much supports our delivery of first-class legal services of the highest calibre to our clients.”
