Helen Clements

Trainee Solicitor

I am a Trainee Solicitor in the Employment Department.

My areas of work

I started my Training Contract with BakerLaw in September 2017 and have undertaken seats in the Private Client and Family Departments.

I am currently in my third seat in the Employment Department, where I have been assisting in cases and have been involved in:

  • Drafting a contract of employment,
  • Drafting and amending Settlement Agreements to tailor them to the needs of the client,
  • Drafting a grievance letter setting out the client's factual background and complaints,
  • Advising on the merits of claims for unfair dismissal and constructive dismissal, 
  • Considering and researching a potential redundancy situation,
  • Attending a Preliminary Hearing in relation to an unfair dismissal claim, and
  • Writing case reports that focus on key Employment Law issues. 

In my Employment seat, I have typically spent 50% of my time assisting on dispute-related matters, with the remainder of my time being spent learning about file management, researching, client care requirements, marketing and assisting with business development. 

My previous experience

Before joining BakerLaw I graduated from Oxford Brookes University with a 2:1 LLB Law Degree, and then went on to attain a distinction on the Legal Practice Course at The University of Law in Guildford.

My interest and hobbies

In my spare time I enjoy playing tennis, reading books and cooking for my friends and family.
