Meet the Team : Jennifer Platt

Jennifer Platt

I am a senior associate in the employment team with a wide range of experience across different sectors, including education and healthcare. I advise in relation to all employment law and HR matters. I have particular expertise dealing with Employment Tribunal claims, including unfair dismissal and discrimination (specifically disability and sex discrimination).

Joined SAS Daniels: 2020

What people say about me:

“I found Jennifer’s advice, professionalism, reliable and attentive service to be a great comfort and reassurance during what could have been a difficult time. Her expertise and experience is beyond question in employment related matters. I would have no hesitation to recommend her for such services” - Private client, Cheshire.

“I’ve worked with Jennifer on a number of projects. She has always proved to be really helpful and accurate in the way she dealt with the advice she gave. Jennifer developed a good working relationship with staff in a friendly and efficient manner” - Business client, Manchester.

Why I'm no ordinary professional:

So far during my career, in addition to being an external adviser in private practice, I have been an internal adviser in-house for a higher education provider. I also have experience of operational and strategic employment-related matters acting in the capacity of trustee for a Manchester-based charity. Therefore I have a well-rounded approach to advising on employment law having been in the employer’s shoes. I am focussed on achieving positive outcomes for clients and giving down to earth, practical advice.

A bit about me

What’s the best place you’ve visited and why?

The best place I have visited is Rwanda where I went to trek gorillas in the wild.

If you weren’t a lawyer what would you be doing?

I am slightly obsessed with politics and current affairs. I would love to be a special adviser working at 10 Downing Street – although perhaps not currently!

If we pressed play on your ipod what would we hear?

Something by David Bowie.
