Flint Bishop makes triple employment team hire

We have recruited two associates and one solicitor to expand our Employment team.

Martin Cornforth, joining us from Elliot Mather LLP, specialises in complex TUPE transactions and defending claims in the Employment Tribunal. Martin has more than 12 years’ experience, including drafting the referral to the CJEU in the now well-known Lock v British Gas case.

We are also delighted to welcome back Laura Evans, who previously spent 10 years working for Flint Bishop as a specialist employment lawyer. Laura will support our rapidly-expanding education sub-division, providing employment law advice and HR support to maintained and non-maintained schools across the Midlands.

The final addition to our Employment team is Alpa Divecha-Kanji, a solicitor from national law firm, Slater and Gordon. Alpa has a wealth of experience in dealing with disability-related issues and has previously worked as an in-house lawyer for the Whirlpool Corporation.

Louise Easthope, Partner & Head of Employment, comments on the appointments:

“I am delighted to be welcoming Martin, Laura and Alpa to the Employment team. In addition to bringing a wealth of experience with them, our hires enable us to continue to develop and grow both regionally and nationally.”
