Excellent support, practical and sound advice
Alison’s podcasts are really informative and most helpful. She delivers her message with a practical application and examples. She shows a great deal of empathy and clear understanding of the issues faced by employers and employees alike.

Thank you Alison.
Employment lawyer in your pocket
I follow Alison on LinkedIn and listen to her podcasts on regular basis. I am fairly junior in my HR position and I have to say my work would be harder without Alison and her podcasts. Very easy to listen and everything is explained to the detail. I usually share Alison’s podcast with Director and Line Managers. Above and beyond HR employment law 👌🏻
Excellent overviews in plain English
Alison’s podcast delves into enough detail to make complex topics and tribunal decisions comprehensible. Excellent at explaining the law so that it translates into the commercial context. Definitely one to add to your regular list!
