Hayley Robinson Partner

Hayley qualified in 2001, and has been a partner since 2011. She now heads the firm’s employment group, advising on the full range of employment matters, both contentious and non-contentious.

Hayley’s contentious work ranges from advising on sensitive or acrimonious disciplinary or grievance procedures to restrictive covenant and other post termination disputes to litigation in the Employment Tribunal.

On the non-contentious side, she advises employers on their day-to-day employment issues, helping them to resolve difficult workplace situations in a commercially sensitive way. She is also experienced in advising on the employment aspects of all types of corporate transactions and restructurings.
