‘Sue King is a highly skilled and competent Employment Law Partner. She is an exemplar of the unique features of the firm. There is a real sense of thoroughness to the work she produces. Contracts are watertight because she has taken time to understand how the organisation operates and therefore what is needed in a contract. Time is taken to consider a range of options and the best solution is reached in a collaborative way with the client. Whilst work is produced in a timely manner. With any employment law matters she would be my solicitor of choice.'
