Murrell Associates is going from strength to strength with the highly-regarded employment law expert, Melanie Rowe, joining the firm’s business team as a Senior Associate.
Melanie, who qualified as a solicitor in 2010, joins Murrell Associates from Cornish firm, Nalders, where she worked for 12 years. She’ll be heading up the employment law side of Murrell Associates business offering, advising her clients on all employment law issues that can occur throughout the duration of the employment relationship – from recruitment and contractual documents and day-to-day HR legal support, to settlement agreements, employment tribunals and post-termination restrictions.
“Having the opportunity to come to Murrell Associates and set up a dedicated & specialist employment law offering is an exciting challenge and one I am relishing” Melanie says. “Career-wise, it’s a great place for me to be, and Murrell Associates hold very high standards which I know will help me to promote both myself and the firm as leading specialists in the south west and beyond.
“For me, the draw of employment law is the varied nature of the work. In the space of a day you can go from being sat at your desk trying to assist a client with the best way to restructure their business or respond to a grievance raised by an employee, to appearing in an employment tribunal responding to a complex discrimination claim. It’s often big issues I get to tackle, that I can really get stuck into, and I get a buzz from doing my job well and getting the best outcome for my clients.
“I’m excited to be able to help people who are looking for a personal service, where I can build up an ongoing relationship, give them jargon-free assistance, and get to the root of the issue without over complicating it for them.”
Murrell Associates Managing Director, Hugh Murrell, added: “We’re a team of business solicitors who like to understand and work closely with clients and their businesses. Our aim is to provide legal advice that is accessible, commercial, and which adds value to those businesses. I’ve no doubt Melanie will play a crucial role in helping us do this and I’m delighted to welcome her to the firm.”
