Josephine heads up the employment law team at Slater and Gordon Lawyers in Edinburgh.
She qualified as a barrister and solicitor in New Zealand in 2002 and qualified in the UK as a solicitor in 2010 and so has a number of years' experience working across different jurisdictions. Josephine is a discrimination expert and has experience acting for whistleblowers, particularly senior executives in the City, and across other organisations, including in the public and voluntary sectors. Josephine has conducted a number of high value settlements in these areas as well as successfully litigated claims in the Employment Tribunals.
Josephine was recently invited by the Franco British Lawyers Society Limited and Queen Mary University of London in Paris to speak to their delegates on whistleblowing protections within the UK. She regularly appears on TV and radio providing advice and expert commentary in respect of employment issues in the media.
While she now works predominantly in the private sector, regularly acting for executives and seeking to resolve disputes amicably, she also has considerable litigation experience in the public sector as a result of her time as an employment litigator for Treasury for five years before to joining Slater and Gordon. Josephine’s practice encompasses all aspects of employment law.
