Recently we sought legal advice in order to resolve a high profile and complex case involving a member of senior management with many issues surrounding it. Helen Watson helped us navigate through the various options and solutions available. Her clear legal knowledge and astute advice was equally balanced with her commercial approach, allowing us to agree a suitable settlement with our ex-employee.
