Hifsa O'Kelly (she/her) LLB (Hons)

Associate, solicitor

I am an associate, solicitor working in the highly rated employment law & business immigration team. I advise clients on a wide range of employment matters, including defending tribunal proceedings and general management of employees and HR matters.

I have specialised in employment law since qualifying as a solicitor in 2011 and have experience acting for individuals and businesses on unfair dismissal, settlement agreements, redundancy, TUPE, discrimination and whistleblowing claims. I’ve acted for a wide variety of clients, including schools, colleges, small-medium sized businesses and larger clients, including a well-known airline.

I take time to listen and understand my client’s circumstances so that I can provide bespoke advice that is honest, practical and straightforward.
