Angharad is a Solicitor in our Employment and Immigration team, advising employees and employers across a broad spectrum of organisations and industries.

Her clients range from European branches of international corporate entities, large NHS Trusts, private healthcare operators, charities, start-up companies and individuals working in finance and banking, law, retail, hospitality, healthcare and various other services industries.

Angharad advises claimants in relation to sex and race and discrimination claims, whistleblowing claims, grievance and disciplinary investigations, defending a pregnancy discrimination claim and advising on settlement agreements. She also directly assists the Head of Department with Tribunal claims, wrongful and unfair dismissal claims, redundancy and various employment status matters, including IR35 tax claims, as well as drafting contracts of employment and policies.

She has spearheaded our firm’s immigration offering to individuals to assist with their applications under the UK’s settlement scheme for EEA nationals wishing to remain in the UK post-Brexit.

Experience

Angharad’s key cases include:

  • A large IR35 tax appeal against HMRC on behalf of joint appellants from the entertainment industry. This case is likely to set a key precedent in this line of case law and have a significant impact on broader employment status matters.
  • Leading on our firm’s first claim in the First Tier Health, Education and Social Care (Special Education Needs) Tribunal defending an education institution in a case of alleged disability discrimination against a child.
  • Supporting an international corporate client with Tier 2 visa applications and extensions, and regarding re-entry under Indefinite Leave to Remain.
