Paula Lee on BBC News - 07.02.2018

Paula was a partner in the employment team at her last firm, a highly regarded regional practice, described by Chambers and Partners  in 2013 as a team offering “a level of client service that is as close to faultless as could be achieved”.  Paula was also credited by the same legal directory in 2009 as being the reason that firm “captured the claimant market  for high –profile executives”.

Paula has a hands-on, practical approach to problem solving and is an able negotiator. She will work with a client to try and restore harmonious working relationships where possible, and in the event that is not desired or achievable, she will expertly guide clients through all available options from  how to negotiate an agreed exit through to litigation.  Paula understands and respects competing interests and will leave no stone unturned in trying to achieve her client’s objectives.

Paula is recommended by The Legal 500, which says of Paula ‘it is hard to find someone who is so capable and prepared to fight so hard’ (2015); and describes her as an ‘extremely capable and strong communicator’ in 2018. She receives outstanding feedback from client, who say “I would not hesitate to recommend Paula Lee to anyone”.

Paula can advise on all aspects of employment law and will consider undertaking work on a fixed-fee, ‘no win, no fee’ or private paying basis.
