Our Senior Solicitor Tamsin James supports our individual/employee clients and claimants bringing Employment Tribunal claims.
Tamsin brings to her work a wealth of experience not only of employment law but in particular of working with individuals who find themselves in challenging situations at work. She works closely and supportively with her clients to get the best outcomes for them.
Tamsin trained and practised as an employment lawyer at a leading law firm, Simmons & Simmons, in the City of London and later at Burges Salmon in Bristol. After taking a break when her children were young (when she also managed to build a career as a trainer and lecturer and gain a Masters in Labour Law (with Distinction) at the University of Bristol), Tamsin went back into practice so that she could help individuals who are experiencing difficulties at work; something that she has always felt passionate about.
She worked at a regional law centre for two years and latterly at Watkins Solicitors in Bristol, where she has built up a reputation as someone who is always on her client’s side and who gives straight, sensible, experienced advice and guidance.
Tamsin particularly enjoys working on complex discrimination claims and supporting individuals with disabilities, but also takes equal satisfaction in helping clients who are simply leaving a job under a Settlement Agreement.
For the last 10 years, Tamsin has also worked as a trainer explaining the intricacies of employment law to aspiring employment solicitors.
Earlier in life Tamsin studied Modern History at Oxford University at the same time as our Partner Simon Martin (apparently they never met but believe they did drink in the same bar).Call 0117 325 0926
