I work closely with Omer Simjee, providing support on all employment and business immigration law matters.

Defending employment tribunal claims requires strong project management skills. My role is to keep all cases on track, ensuring none of those little but important details fall through the cracks, as well as completing Tribunal documentation which forms part of our clients’ defence. I get satisfaction from helping clients resolve their disputes proactively. 

I’m looking forward to becoming Magma’s first trainee solicitor in January 2022.
