Siobhan Bishop

Siobhan Bishop helps clients to manage their strategic and employee issues by delivering commercial and effective solutions. In her role as a professional support lawyer, Siobhan helps the employment, labour and equalities team to deliver the best business-oriented solutions for clients.

Employment law is a dynamic and complex area, where the commercial issues are often just as important as the legal considerations.

Siobhan helps the team to deliver the best value for money, commercial solutions based on experience, judgement and cutting edge technical knowledge. She ensures that the team has the know-how, training and resources they need to deliver great results for clients.

Siobhan keeps clients up-to-date in this fast-paced area through training, articles, podcasts, webinars and social media and she has written content for Lexis®PSL and Thomson Reuters.

Siobhan also has over 10 years’ experience in a client-facing role, as an employment lawyer at the firm. She has wide ranging legal experience having worked for large private sector employers, public sector bodies, international organisations, in-house lawyers and HR professionals. Siobhan’s background gives her invaluable knowledge in helping clients get to where they need to be.

  • Thought leadership in responding to government consultations on employment issues for clients, the firm and Employment Lawyers Association (ELA).

Memberships
