Pip joined our Employment team in 2012 and advises clients on a wide range of employment issues.



“Pip was our contact at Royds Withy King.  She was able to answer any questions that we had and provide us with all the options and guidance we needed to make decisions.  She was always easy to contact and quick to give us the information we requested.  Everything was explained to us clearly in a “language” we could understand and in a friendly manner. Pip delivered what we needed and we had confidence in her ability to do the best she could for our organisation.  The fee structure and “best value” options were clearly explained.  Thank you for your assistance.”

Her approach was very supportive and the course benefited our managers’ confidence and knowledge as it clarified many employment misconceptions.

Overall it was a very relaxed and informative course”
