The Legal 500


Emily joined chambers after successfully completing pupillage in October 2021. Since then, she has been building a busy practice in Chamber’s core practice areas. Emily has particular expertise in employment law having been an employment solicitor at Hogan Lovells prior to transferring to the Bar.

Emily read History at the University of Cambridge, where she was awarded a Senior Exhibition academic prize for her results in second year.

Emily was then one of six UK graduates to receive the prestigious Daiwa Scholarship from the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation, a unique fully funded 19-month programme of language study and work placement in Tokyo, Japan. Whist in Japan, Emily volunteered at the human rights NGO, Human Rights Now where she edited a report on child labour.

At law school, Emily obtained Distinctions in both the Graduate Diploma in Law and the Accelerated Legal Practice Course. Whilst studying, Emily volunteered at the Anti-Trafficking and Labour Exploitation Unit where she developed a particular interest in representing survivors of trafficking and labour exploitation.

As a trainee solicitor at Hogan Lovells, Emily gained a breadth of experience in employment, tax and employee share incentives, international arbitration, construction litigation, and commercial real estate, before qualifying into the employment team in 2016.

As an Associate in the employment team at Hogan Lovells, Emily gained invaluable experience working closely with in-house legal, HR, and senior witnesses litigating complex multi-day Employment Tribunal claims. Emily advised on all aspects of employment law – including TUPE, GDPR, employment status, restrictive covenants, highly sensitive investigations, disciplinaries and grievance processes, redundancies, contracts, policies, settlement agreements, corporate transactions, restructurings, and international projects. Emily also regularly drafted pleadings, witness statements, and applications, honing her drafting skills. Emily obtained her Higher Rights of Audience as a solicitor.
