Banner Jones bolsters employment law division

Law firm Banner Jones has expanded its employment law division with the appointment of Sara Ellison, a human resources and employment law legal executive.

Ellison has joined the Sheffield-based Banner Jones employment law team with immediate effect, bringing with her more than 14-years of experience advising both individuals and private, public and third-sector clients.

Having studied at Sheffield Hallam University before joining Irwin Mitchell, and subsequently Watson Esam and Taylor Bracewell, Ellison has particular expertise in discrimination and unfair dismissal cases, providing advice at all stages, from internal disputes to full tribunal representation.

Katie Ash, director and head of employment law at Banner Jones, commented: “Sara is a welcome addition to our established employment law team—bringing with her considerable expertise and experience, and further bolstering our ability to meet increased demand.”

“Having previously worked with Sara at Watson Esam and Taylor Bracewell, I am delighted that she is joining the team in this period of growth as we continue to deliver high quality employment law services.”

Commenting on her appointment, Ellison said: “As a chartered legal executive I enjoy the challenges that specialising in this particular area of the law presents from negotiating an amicable solution early on in a case to save time, costs and also the emotional distress that accompanies workplace disagreements to being involved in employment tribunal litigation.”

“Joining a multi- award-winning, ambitious law firm with a long-established reputation for excellence in employment law is a fantastic opportunity and I am thrilled to be able to bring my expertise to Banner Jones.”
