During the recent session from our ‘General Counsel Know How’ series, head of employment Nicky Cranfield led an interesting discussion on managing performance in the workplace.
I cover all areas of employment law, which I have been practising since I qualified at City outfit, Charles Russell LLP in 1998. I trained at the College of Law (now ULaw) receiving a commendation in both of my years there. I have a 2.i degree in Modern History from Wadham College, Oxford.
I also work as a legal and current affairs journalist under the name of Polly Botsford. I have written for The Times, Prospect magazine and more latterly with online platform, Legal Cheek, and the Law Society Gazette.
A social cause I care about
For me, society starts right on my front door so I focus on the problems in my immediate community
