Profile

After qualifying as a Solicitor in September 2004, and working at both Eversheds and Addleshaw Goddard, specialising in employment law, Rosie transferred to the Bar in 2018.  She became a tenant at Kings Chambers in April 2019 following the completion of a shortened pupillage under the supervision of James Boyd.

As a Solicitor, Rosie’s client base was varied, including public, private and third sector organisations, as well as individuals.  In addition to advising on day to day practical employment issues and more complex restructuring, regulatory and project type people matters, Rosie’s past experience had a significant focus on employment litigation.  She acted regularly for clients in the Employment Tribunal, (including conducting her own advocacy), as well as advising on claims for breach of post-termination restrictions and confidentiality provisions in the High Court.

Since transferring to the Bar, Rosie has already started to build a strong practice, accepting instructions from both employers and employees.  She has recently acted in the Employment Tribunal for several major retailers, as well as clients in the leisure and hospitality, industrials and healthcare sectors.  She has taken a keen interest in and has provided assistance on a number of discrimination and whistleblowing claims involving NHS and other health trusts. 

Rosie’s practice also encompasses sports law disputes, having previously advised a number of clients in the sports industry on employment-related matters.
