Employment Law Paralegal
She helps clients who are employed by companies such as Arcadia, Flybe, TM Lewin and Debenhams secure Protective Awards if they haven't been properly consulted after being made redundant.
As part of her role, she liaises with stakeholders including the Redundancy Payment Service, Insolvency administrators, Employment Tribunals and Solicitors from other law firms.
This is an extremely complex area of law, with some Protective Awards claims involving more than 900 claimants.
It has been a steep learning curve, but Anisa’s strength is attention to detail and her willingness to learn from senior Solicitors leading the protective award campaigns.
Anisa is an asset to the Employment Law team and those she reports to are very impressed by her development during her time at Simpson Millar. Her future goal is to qualify as a solicitor in Employment Law.
She joined Simpson Millar in March 2020, initially working in the Client Contact Centre on the New Business Team on-boarding Personal Injury, Road Traffic Accident and CICA claims for a number of clients. She was promoted to a Paralegal in the Employment Law team in November 2020.
Interests Outside of Work
Anisa is horse mad – she spends most of her weekends helping out with the horses in her local stable and riding. She would love to have her own horse in the future. She also finds time to support Manchester United, with a season ticket at Old Trafford.
