This is where you can get to know Emma Peacock.

Emma is a Partner in the Employment department and is based in the London office.

She advises on the full range of contentious and non-contentious employment law related issues including disciplinaries, grievances, poor performance, maternity, ill-health and more. She also has experience with business immigration.

Her clients range from senior executives to large multinationals and are based around the UK.

She has guided many employers and employees through the Employment Tribunal process and Employment Appeal Tribunal process with considerations and strategies for settlement.

She also has practical experience in handling the employment aspects of corporate transactions on reorganisations. When it is necessary, she works closely with the Sherrards Corporate and Commercial team, together they assess business risks and liability to achieve the best outcome.

Emma also advises on business immigration law. This involves advising on the most appropriate route of entry into the UK for the senior staff of an overseas business looking to either set up or expand their UK/European operations and also dealing with (or co-ordinating) the application process for the relocation of senior staff or individuals and their families into the UK. Emma finds that this often goes hand in hand with advising on the employment law requirements and implications of setting up a UK office or business.

Never one for sitting on the fence, she is known for her commercial and pragmatic advice, working closely with clients to achieve their strategic goals and the legal results they need.

That’s it – no fuss, just facts.
