Our People

Kate Walsh
Senior Solicitor

I joined Clarkslegal in early 2015 and was seconded to one of the firm’s largest clients for an 18-month secondment. I have experience of acting for both individuals and businesses on a range of employment matters. 

My day to day work involves navigating clients through matters such as:

  • Complex disciplinary and grievance proceedings
  • Sickness absence
  • Restructures or large scale changes to terms and conditions
  • TUPE transfers

I also work with clients to draft or review policies on a range of issues.

I have experience of advising on the application of TUPE and representing clients in complex TUPE related disputes. I also regularly draft and negotiate warranties and indemnities in commercial contracts.

I represented a senior individual in a complex whistleblowing claim at tribunal. I also regularly negotiate settlement packages on behalf of senior individuals.

I have experience of defending a wide range of complex employment claims including unfair dismissal, discrimination and whistleblowing. I regularly advise employers on both internal proceedings and tribunal claims.

I regularly deliver training on a number of employment issues including:

  • Settlement discussions
  • Managing disciplinary and grievance processes
  • Being an effective witness at tribunal 
  • Whistleblowing
