Amy Penn



Associate Amy Penn qualified as a solicitor in March 2019. Amy advises employers and employees on a wide range of contentious and non-contentious employment law issues but specialises in Employment Tribunal litigation, routinely assisting clients in pursuing and defending claims. 

Amy has a broad and varied case load, and has experience in advising clients on a wide range of claims including Unfair Dismissal, Discrimination, Whistleblowing, Equal Pay, and contractual disputes including Unlawful Deductions from Wages. Amy has supported clients, and has a particular interest, in dealing with claims of discrimination and harassment, which require a careful and considered approach due to the often very sensitive nature of the allegations, and potential vulnerabilities of those involved. 

Amy also advises on non-contentious employment law issues.
