“Advice and treatment from Gemma - first class!”

Barry Hutchings

Gemma graduated from Southampton university with an Honours degree and double Masters and went on to lecture law in a number of colleges and universities around the world. She gained experience at Kiteley’s Solicitors from 2012 in both dispute resolution and immigration but then went on to specialise in immigration from 2015 and has since represented clients from over 50 individual countries worldwide.

Gemma is also a fully qualified Commercial and Civil Mediator, qualifying from the Academy of Experts London in 2009 and completed her OISC (Office of Immigration Services Commissioner) Level 1 & 2 in 2018.

Gemma joined Laceys in 2018 and her particular specialisms include family and business immigration applications. Gemma thoroughly enjoys representing clients of all nationalities and backgrounds and whatever the issue, Gemma provides a very bespoke, flexible approach to her work ensuring all clients needs are fully catered for.

Outside of the office, Gemma is a keen animal welfare volunteer with a particular interest in assisting with the rehabilitation and rehoming of abandoned animals and spends a lot of time training her own ‘”free range” rabbits who can often be found helping themselves to veggie delights in the kitchen or snuggled up on the sofa watching The Chase!

“Cocowai is a wholesale and online retail cashmere company. We recently contacted Robin Watson at Laceys Solicitors to help and advise us with producing an employment contract, and subsequently for advice on other employment issues. Robin has been extremely helpful and efficient throughout the whole - from our initial meeting, through to further telephone conversations and subsequent emails. I have been impressed by Robin's consideration of our "type" and "size" of company, whilst advising on what kind of contract we needed for our business. ”

Frances Macaulay, COCOWAI

Robin studied law at the University of Southampton before achieving Distinction in a postgraduate law diploma at Bournemouth University in 2011 and being awarded the Dorset Magistrates’ Association Excellence in Advocacy Award.

Robin qualified as a solicitor with Laceys in 2011, and is now one of Laceys partners, specialising in employment law. He advises employers, HR Directors and managers on all aspects of complex employment law and day-to-day HR issues.

Robin regularly advises on TUPE when clients are buying or selling a business or in relation to tenders. Robin also represents clients during Employment Tribunal proceedings. Robin’s clients range from small local start-ups to large national businesses. Robin advises on immigration for employers and individuals too.

In addition, Robin is a litigator and advises clients when a dispute arises. Robin’s particular interest is in advocacy and he has gained Higher Rights of Audience as a Solicitor-Advocate that permits him to appear in all civil courts and tribunals for clients.

Away from work Robin enjoys cycling, cooking and eating. Lately Robin has (again) started sketching and is trying to convince himself that he has a talent!
