NI: Arthur Cox appoints new partner in Belfast office
Dublin-based Arthur Cox has announced the appointment of Emma-Jane Flannery as an employment law partner at its Northern Ireland practice.
Ms Flannery has 12 years’ experience of dealing with both contentious and non-contentious matters, specialising in disciplinary and grievance issues as well as tribunal claims involving unfair dismissals and discrimination.
The Employment Law team at Arthur Cox’s Belfast office, led by Rosemary Lundy, provides specialist advice to a range of private and public sector clients on a variety of employment law and personnel issues, including long-term sickness absence, Transfer of Undertakings (TUPE), commercial transactions and industrial disputes.
Catriona Gibson, managing partner at Arthur Cox, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Emma-Jane to the Partner team at Arthur Cox and I know she will make a major contribution to our first-class reputation in the market, which is built on our service delivery ethos of proactivity and partnership.
“Emma-Jane plays a leading role in our Employment Law team, regularly delivering bespoke training sessions and in-house seminars to our clients on current topics of interest and important legal developments.
“This appointment is a recognition of Emma-Jane’s expertise and outstanding quality of work, as well as her commitment to the firm and to her clients, and I wish her every success in the role.”
Ms Flannery added: “It’s a huge honour to join the Partner team at Arthur Cox and a special way to mark my 10th year with the firm.
“Employment Law is such a fast-moving, dynamic area of law with a wide range of new topics constantly coming to the fore. Our clients are regularly seeking advice on evolving issues such as the National Living Wage, the Apprenticeship Levy, business immigration and the gender pay gap.
“I will continue to work closely with Rosemary and the rest of our team to ensure Arthur Cox clients receive the best possible advice and commercial guidance in accordance with all employment laws.”
