Before embarking on a career in law Chelsea was a very successful business owner. Being an employer, Chelsea developed a keen interest in Employment Law, which fuelled her ambition to join the Bar. Chelsea quickly developed experience in Employment Litigation through pro bono and consultancy work she undertook with various employment firms in Leeds before starting her pupillage at Park Square Barristers.
Chelsea has been quick to develop a busy practice here at Park Square Barristers within the Employment Team and is regularly instructed on behalf of both Claimants and Respondents. She has become a main source of referral to advise on the merits of successful claims, on behalf of insurance companies. Chelsea was recently instructed in a 4-day unfair dismissal tribunal. It was a complex case involving child protection issues, and the gross misconduct of an experienced social worker, with a bundle spanning more than 1000 pages, it dealt with complex investigations and detailed safeguarding policies.
Chelsea is happy to offer the delivery of in-house seminars and training for both employers and solicitor’s firms.
Chelsea accepts instructions to draft pleadings and is happy to provide pre-action advice on the merits of individual cases. She is happy to work to short deadlines where papers need to be turned around quickly.
Chelsea may accept Public Access work, where she can be instructed directly by a member of the public rather than a solicitor.
