Linky has a wealth of experience and advises on a full range of employment issues for established corporate clients and senior executives in both regulated and non regulated industries. She has provided strategic advice on a number of successful team moves within the communications and financial sector acting for both the poaching competitor and the individuals being approached.
Linky understands that when a business or a senior executive has an employment related issue, it frequently requires immediate and urgent attention and Linky is consistently praised by clients for her speed of response and turn around time. Her client base encompasses a broad range of industry sectors including financial services (from senior executives in substantial financial institutions to owner managed hedge funds), professional services (including legal, architectural, accounting, recruitment, consultancies), local authorities, PR and advertising, manufacturing and retail companies.
Linky has both Employment Tribunal and High Court experience and has obtained and resisted a number of High Court injunctions to enforce or resist post termination restraints and to protect confidential information. She also advises on data protection, commercial agents and the Conduct of Employment Businesses and Employment Agency issues.
