Rachel Hearn joins BDBF LLP as an employment solicitor, growing its leading employment practice to nine lawyers since its formation in 2012.

Rachel joins BDBF as a two-year qualified lawyer from the employment team of Kent firm Clarkson Wright & Jakes where she trained and spent two years working. Rachel has solid experience of advising both individuals and businesses on a wide range of employment issues including unfair dismissal, redundancy, discrimination, whistleblowing, and restrictive covenants.

On the contentious side, Rachel has acted in numerous employment tribunal disputes successfully representing both employers and employees from a variety of industries.

Arpita Dutt, senior partner at BDBF said the firm is delighted to have Rachel on board, strengthening its employment team following the hire of senior employment lawyer, Nick Wilcox, from Ince & Co last year.
