Laura Briffett, Senior Associate

Laura has broad experience in employment and commercial law, and her work as an in-house lawyer means that her advice is commercial and pragmatic. She has assisted with litigation in the Employment Relations Authority, Employment Court and High Court, represented clients at mediation, and advised on a range of individual and collective employment relations matters, including strikes, lockouts and bargaining.

Laura has a particular interest in assisting employers to protect their proprietary interests against departing employees, and has advised on search orders, team move issues and the enforcement of restraints of trade.
