Sarah Headshot 1 002 150x150 Sarah Russell

Sarah works from the Manchester office and predominantly represents employees.  She is a recognised expert on employment law, and was recently on the BBC News and BBC World, talking about pay issues.

Sarah understands that for most people, seeking legal advice is the last resort in a stressful situation.  Her clients frequently report feeling “much better” after their first meeting with her.  Sarah is transparent about costs and offers fixed fees where appropriate.  Appointments are available in the evening and at weekends, as well as during office hours.

All sorts of people have instructed Sarah, including CEOs, company directors, doctors, engineers, HR and IT professionals, and sales staff.  She regularly negotiates on behalf of senior executives who want a “controlled exit” from their employment, and appreciates the importance of securing and protecting each client’s reputation, as well as getting an excellent financial package.

Sarah is passionate about helping those who have suffered unfair dismissal and/or discrimination and has enabled many disabled clients to obtain adjustments at work.  Sarah often assists working mothers whose flexible working requests have been declined, or who are being made redundant or mistreated on their return from maternity leave.  She recently negotiated a six-figure settlement for a senior employee at a big four accountancy firm who had suffered maternity discrimination.

Sarah qualified as a solicitor ten years ago, and has previously worked for Slater & Gordon Lawyers, and in-house for a FTSE 100 PLC.
