Gemma Clark

Solicitor

Gemma advises on a variety of contentious and non-contentious employment law issues, both for employers and employees.

“Many thanks for the help and support that you have given us with our HR problems, I think we got the outcomes correct on both occasions and we have not had any comeback from either which is testimony to the professional way in which they were handled”

Experience

  • Assisted a large business reach settlement in respect of a Tribunal claim regarding furlough payment, which could have potentially opened a floodgate to further claims.
  • Navigating employers and employees throughout the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.
  • Acted for a business in advising on a redundancy process and the risks involved, leading to successful settlement discussions being undertaken with the employees to mitigate such risks.

"The team has a particularly strong track record of successfully handling discrimination claims."

Interests

Outside of work, Gemma enjoys socialising with friends and family and engaging in a variety of activities, including a number of sports, escape rooms or a tricky puzzle when the weather isn’t quite so good!
