Hannah is a Partner and Head of Employment Law and Holistic HR. Hannah is a regular presenter at our HR lunches, workshops and seminars.

Hannah has over 15 years of experience as an employment lawyer, and worked at McGrigors (now Pinsent Mason) and Lindsays before joining MBM in 2012.

During her years of practice, Hannah has advised a wide range of employers, from major banks and PLCs, to SMEs, start-ups and charities. She has also helped numerous employees and Senior Executives to successfully exit from businesses.

At MBM Hannah works closely with our Corporate team, advising on redundancies, TUPE, the employment aspects of business sales and investments, post-termination restrictions and all the other legal and HR issues that arise from having staff.

Hannah's employer clients are varied but include many technology companies, life-science, professional service firms and cleaning/facilities businesses.

Upon joining MBM, in order to meet client demand for affordable HR advice, Hannah and her team designed and implemented our Holistic HR service. Holistic HR is a fixed fee unlimited employment law and HR advice service which acts as an outsourced HR department for smaller companies, and gives added support to larger ones.

“MBM have been invaluable to me. As our company has grown, I’ve needed more help. There’s been no query too complicated, and no question too stupid (despite what I feared were numerous attempts to push that boundary!) . The team have always been on hand to support me through the challenges with patience and understanding. HR can be a minefield, but MBM have been a constant source of guidance through that minefield, and I’m grateful to have them by our side as we continue to grow our company and our HR department.“
“We have been working with MBM’s Holistic HR team for the last 4-5 years. They have provided us with invaluable HR support as we have grown and the service has been excellent. We are a small business, so it makes little sense to employ a full-time specialist HR Advisor, which means having the ability to call on their services only when needed has been brilliant.“
“I have found the working relationship with Holistic HR to be invaluable, Hannah and the team are very knowledgeable, personable and provide practical advice in every situation.  Hannah understands the nature of our business and will always tailor the advice she provides accordingly.  In my experience, Hannah will always consider both the legal aspects as well as what is most practical for the business and that approach for a small business is very important.  The resources available on the Holistic HR web portal are extensive and informative with plenty of templates and guidance to refer to.  I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending that businesses engage with Hannah and the team on all employment related matters.“
