Gillian has specialised in employment law for over 17 years having spent her entire career with JEL since qualifying as a Solicitor in Scotland. An exceptional ‘all rounder’, Gillian supports clients of all sizes in all areas of contentious and non-contentious employment law including redundancy, restructuring, TUPE, disciplinary, dismissal and discrimination issues.

Building and maintaining client relationships is at the heart of everything Gillian does and her knowledge and pragmatic application of the law is greatly valued by employers. She delivers bespoke guidance, support and training to businesses and has appeared before the Employment Tribunal throughout the UK with an excellent record.

Throughout her career Gillian has led large-scale projects including group-wide re-structures; TUPE-related acquisitions & disposals; collective consultations; and negotiations with ACAS and trade unions. She is equally adept at assisting SME’s with their employment support needs; contracts; and policy drafting. As a key member of our legal team she plays an active role in developing our emerging talent at Just Employment Law who benefit from her expertise.

Gillian regularly appears in the media and writes for a variety of publications, providing insightful commentary on key employment law developments in the UK.
