Wainwright & Cummins LLP is the legal practice I have joined as an employment law consultant.
Wainwright & Cummins LLP is a London law practice, providing legal services to its community for over 30 years. With an established practice in Criminal, Prison, Family, Wills & Probate, Housing, Property and Immigration law, I join them offering a new employment law service to clients.
A good lawyer knows her clients’ industry. My previous firm, Capsticks Solicitors LLP, is a specialist and number one niche practice law firm providing legal advice to the healthcare sector. The importance of knowing your client’s business is clear and unquestionable when it comes to providing a stellar service. Now working as an actress, my specialist experience areas have grown. Tailored advice makes a massive difference and it means so much to a client if you can say to them, I’ve been there too.
I’ve written a series of blogs on employment law from a theatre perspective and the creative world. But the pressures and issues are the same in any industry. People trying to work together, people trying to achieve, money, workplace safety, life.
How do we detect discrimination and ensure diversity and equality in the workplace?
My blog “detecting discrimination” looks at discrimination from a theatre experience, Lord Of the Rings, Bechdel Test, all relating to gender equality! Lots of work is being done on this topic by industry pioneers including Tonic Theatre, Sphinx Theatre Company and the charity I am a trustee of, The Act For Change Project. There are many more mountains to climb.
Knowing and getting the law right is step one.
As an actress and an employment lawyer, It’s do it or die trying! Complex and unique. That’s art.
