Caroline has approximately 25 years of experience as an employment lawyer, advising a broad range of businesses including FTSE 100 and 250 companies. She is responsible for some of the firm’s key global accounts, as she co-ordinates and advises in relation to all matters of employment law, on multijurisdictional and local issues. She is passionate about the benefit a “one-stop shop” service can bring to clients, in terms of the effective and efficiency of legal services delivery.
Caroline is regularly instructed by large corporate clients on matters relating to their senior executives. Sources praise her creativity and problem solving, with one saying she is “thoughtful and solutions-oriented”. Chambers and Partners, 2015.

Representing global clients on cross-border employment matters, she deals with rationalisation and restructuring programmes (working with Trade Unions and Works Councils, the application of The Acquired Rights Directive and local equivalents), contract and policy rollouts, and the employment aspects of privacy and data protection matters. Caroline also deals with merger and acquisition projects. She regularly works hand-in-hand with our Litigation team to enforce and defend garden leave, confidentiality and restrictive covenant obligations.
Caroline also represents senior individuals on their recruitment, remuneration, incentive and severance requirements.
