On the 22nd March we held a webinar to discuss the legal ins and outs of hiring and firing employees. Ignition’s Head of Employment, Nicky Cranfield led the webinar, covering everything from reasons for “fair” dismissal, to settlement agreements. Below we have a video recording for those of you who weren’t able to make it on the day.
Before joining Ignition Law, I trained at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP, picking up ample corporate and commercial experience. As well as running my own start-ups, I also consult for a range of tech, food and travel businesses on matters ranging from copywriting and marketing strategies, to investor pitches and business development. In a past life, I worked as a full-time musician, postman, bin man, music teacher, caterer, supermarket trolley boy and builder (although I only lasted 1 day in the latter role).
Writing (from authoring educational books, to copywriting for travel and consumer goods companies); running small businesses (I run a small publishing company called City Career Series and a luxury cake company called Whisk & Drizzle); smelling/tasting/purchasing/collecting/reading about whisky; and playing drum kit (I perform in both a 9-piece funk band called Born 2 Boogie and a rock band called Inklings).

A social cause I care about
The Stephen Lawrence Scholarship, run out of Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP. The scheme was set up to address the disproportionate under-representation in large commercial law firms and other City institutions of black men from less socially mobile backgrounds.
