And now a little bit about Joanne Perry

Joanne is a Partner in the Employment team and heads up our HR function. She advises on all aspects of contentious and non-contentious employment law, working with a variety of clients from senior executives to large multinationals.

Her HR role gives her a real insight and understanding of the challenges faced by businesses and the importance of getting it right. This means the advice Joanne gives to clients truly reflects the reality of dealing with people, the businesses’ culture and commercial drivers, and the applicable legal issues.

As a member of the Firm Executive Board, Joanne is focused on achieving the Firm’s objectives and making sure the Firm is moving towards achieving its strategic goals. She is also a Sherrards Training Academy Partner, helping those on their journey to qualification at Sherrards.

She is known for making herself available to employees and clients at all hours and supporting them with their matters and objectives, helping them move towards a swift resolution.

She is CIPD accredited and helps many businesses with their HR & business issues.

This results in many long-lasting relationships with clients and employees alike.

Their comments indicate they appreciate her approach; we’d say that too, if you asked us.
