Sheila Aly, Barrister

I have been a specialist in employment law througout my 14 years of practice, although I have helped some clients in other areas when needed. I completed my training at what remains one of the leading chambers in the UK for Employment Law, Littleton Chambers, and have since worked as both a self-employed barrister in chambers and as an in house barrister, prior to returning to independent practice 5 years ago. I have represented numerous satisfied employers and employees in that time.

I regularly assist my clients from the outset of the Tribunals process, or even prior to it if appropriate. With my skills in workplace mediation, I have often been called on to assist prior to a Tribunals process arising. However, once it has, I can also undertake work in relation to all aspects of employment law work which can range from drafting your response, to representing you at Tribunal. Some examples of the type of employment law work I have done in the past includes Unfair Dismissal, Discrimination, Wrongful Dismissal, advising on compromise agreements and drafting contracts.

I am also a mediator and have qualifications in corporate coaching which has led me to become accredited in Commercial, Workplace and Family mediation. I am also an accredited mediation trainer and have trained hundreds of professionals all over the world in mediation, as well as conducting seminars within organisations about various aspects of employment law.

Aha Law

My approach

I often assist my clients from the very outset of their claim. I am down to earth and have been told that I have a knack for explaining complicated concepts in an easy way. I believe in treating everyone that I represent in a way that is both sensitive and professional. I know how stressful defending a claim can be, and I believe that it is my job to make that process as easy as possible for you. I take account of what all my clients want, and we then work together to make sure that you are achieving the best possible results that you can. My past client relationships have meant that I have had the good fortune of getting a lot of my current work through referral and repeat business.

My work & services include:

  • Advising clients on prospects of success and Tribunal tactics on how to achieve the best results
  • Drafting Contracts, Claims, Grievances, Witness Statements, Appeals and other legal documents
  • Representation at all levels of Employment Tribunal
  • Commerical Mediation
  • Family Mediation
  • Workplace Mediation
  • Corporate Training on Employment Law issues including but not limited to minimising disputes, handling disciplinary hearings, TUPE and Redundancy.

About me

I deal with all aspects of Court and non-Court work relating to employment law, including but not limited to Discrimination, Unfair Dismissal, advising on compromise agreements, TUPE issues, and drafting contracts.
