Michelle Ogunlaja


I am an Associate within the Dispute Resolution Department and the Employment Law Department.

My areas of work

I specialise in the following areas:

  • Contractual Disputes
  • Professional Negligence
  • Employment Law
  • Neighbour Disputes
  • Boundary Disputes
  • Debt Recovery
  • Motoring Offences

My recent successes

I recently pursued a claim against a company for unfair dismissal of an employee and although this was a litigated matter, through negotiation I obtained an attractive settlement for the Claimant. I enjoy drafting detailed pleas in mitigation to assist Client’s in motoring offences to ensure they do not receive a disqualification from driving.

My previous experience

I completed the Bar Vocational Course in July 2002 and was called to the Bar in 2002. I dual qualified as a Solicitor in 2006. I previously worked for a leading UK law firm for 9 years within their Personal Injury, Employment and Dispute Resolution Departments, prior to joining BakerLaw in September 2012.

My interests and hobbies

I enjoy spending time with my family and baking sweet treats for my family and friends to sample. I also enjoy jogging and swimming and taking part in challenges, this has previously included half marathons, off road racing over army terrain and sky diving for charity.
