  • Negotiating a new contract of employment with restrictive covenants and lengthy notice periods
  • Facing a disciplinary hearing and/or raising a grievance
  • Bullying, stress at work and/or unlawful discrimination claims

Carmel has been very helpful dealing with my case. She is a professional and very knowledgeable at what she does. Without her help I would not have been able to resolve my case. I would highly recommend her to everyone.

I previously spent 8 years working in the employment law sector and I can honestly say that Carmel is the best Solicitor I’ve met.  I saw her with my daughter, regarding workplace issues, specifically Disability Discrimination and Constructive Dismissal.  In all our dealings with Carmel, she remained professional, explained everything fully and in simple terms whilst retaining both empathy and a realistic outlook.   She has an unbelievable ability to digest vast amounts of information in a short space of time and subsequently compose impactful letters. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Carmel and Sunley Solicitors and my daughter and I cannot thank her enough.

“Finding yourself needing an Employment Lawyer is an unusual experience for most of us but, when you do, it is important that they are the right one for you and Carmel Sunley is very keen to take the time to get to know and to understand her clients, which I found to be helpful and important.

Carmel also patiently explained all the jargon and was more than happy to discuss options with me, whilst constantly listening to my thoughts and being open to my feelings.

I was very grateful that Carmel’s extensive knowledge and experience was available to me.  She works in an area that can be full of emotion and yet her calm professionalism provided me with great support and comfort at what could have been a difficult time.

I am happy that, with her behind me, I have achieved the result that suits me best going forward.”
