Following a training contract undertaken at Clark Willis Solicitors during which he gained experience in criminal law, mental health law and family law, Paul joined Stefan Cross Solicitors and quickly became crucially involved in pursuing the firm’s equal pay claims, both in England and Scotland.
Paul joined Fox Cross Solicitors on the creation of the firm in January 2009 and played a leading role in helping establish the new firm among the foremost employment law firms in Edinburgh, whilst diversifying his experience beyond equal pay and discrimination claims to broader employment law issues.
In March 2010 Paul joined Burnetts Solicitors in Carlisle and became a valued member of the firm’s employment law department. The time Paul spent at Burnetts provided him with an opportunity to act for larger, respondent clients in both the public and private sectors.
A keen and able advocate, Paul has represented clients before numerous employment tribunals in England, and Scotland and has appeared before the Employment Appeal Tribunal and the Employment Appeal Tribunal (Scotland).
Paul would like to say:
“I am very happy to have recently joined Short Richardson & Forth and am enthusiastic about being involved in the full range of the employment team's work. I will be primarily focused on providing swift, high quality advice across a wide spectrum of employment law issues of a contentious and non contentious nature. I also look forward to representing clients at Tribunal on issues involving unfair dismissal, constructive unfair dismissal, redundancy, discrimination and TUPE, in addition to delivering training seminars and presentations on employment law topics to clients and other professional bodies.”
Outside of work, Paul enjoys a wide range of sports, particularly cycling, tennis and cricket, in addition to cooking, reading history and Sunday countryside walks with his wife and their dog.
