Nicola Allen

Managing Associate


Career & Experience

Nicola is a member of the employment team, specialising in unfair dismissal claims and redundancies, as well as providing day-to-day employee relations support to clients. She has particular expertise in high value, complex discrimination cases for national, regional and local clients from a wide variety of industry sectors.

Nicola aims to be an extension of client’s internal HR and/or legal teams, and as a result she’s involved in important, strategic decisions from an early stage. She spends time getting to know her clients’ businesses and their preferred approach to staffing issues, meaning she’s able to advise how to achieve their desired outcome in the most effective way, rather than simply providing a commentary of how the relevant legislation will apply to the situation. Nicola has also undertaken a secondment with Screwfix Direct Limited giving her direct experience of working in-house.

Outside of the office Nicola spends most of her time ‘refereeing’ her three children and generally enjoying the chaos of family life!

Accolades

  • Personal Licence Holder.
  • Member of Employment Lawyers' Association
