Kerry joined Stevens & Bolton LLP in 2006 and is a partner and head of the employment, immigration and pensions department.
She advises on the full range of contentious and non-contentious employment matters, including drafting contracts and staff handbooks, advising on dismissals and termination packages, redundancies and reorganisations, discrimination, family friendly rights and advising in relation to and preparing for Employment Tribunal claims. She also has particular expertise in advising on TUPE and business transfers, both in the context of outsourcing and business sales.
In addition, Kerry is experienced in all aspects of business immigration law and right to work issues. Kerry regularly advises employers and individuals in relation to the points based immigration system, including assisting employers with the sponsorship registration process, assigning certificates of sponsorship and entry clearance and extension applications. She also advises in relation to indefinite leave to remain and naturalisation applications.
Kerry is described by observers in Chambers UK as “a true professional with full knowledge of the subject” and "her advice is particularly clear". Another asserts that she is a "real partner to us rather just adviser" and that "she ensures we cover all relevant matters and highlights potential risks". She also regularly has articles published in the HR press and provides comments to the media on employment and immigration matters.
