Angharad is a Senior Associate, Barrister in our Employment team
When did you join Greene & Greene and what is your current role?
I joined Greene & Greene in January 2017 as a Barrister in the Employment team.
Please tell us about your career to date
I qualified with the Bar Standards Board and was called to the Bar in 2001. I initially practiced in Cardiff mainly in common law with a wide range of cases from criminal to environmental. After relocating to the North, I joined a large regional firm where I practiced as an inhouse Barrister focusing on prosecutions and working on secondments. Within a year I was head hunted to join their employment team. I continued to practice general employment law and relocated to the area in 2012. My qualification allows me to practice as a Solicitor and Barrister without the need for conversion. I am regulated and registered by the BSB.
What attracted you to join the firm?
I was approached about the opportunity at Greene & Greene. I was already aware of the team having come across them at my previous firm in the local marketplace. I was impressed by the breadth of work and the firm’s reputation as an excellent employer so was intrigued to find out more.
Describe a typical day
Whilst I start most days with a plan or a project that needs working on such as contract reviews or prep for a tribunal, a lot of our team’s work is reactive. We never know what the day will bring and sometimes this can mean a quick one email response whilst others can take hours of advice. The variety of the work and the relationships I have with my clients make each day unique.
Is there anything you would like to say to prospective employees?
The firm has an excellent people focused culture. Everyone is helpful and kind making it a great place to work and learn. Flexible working has been embraced helping us achieve a greater work life balance. So much of our work is from referrals and repeat clients which means we are able to build long standing relationships. We work with firms and individuals from all over the country, offering City standard advice from our Bury St Edmunds offices.Learn more about Angharad
