Zoe Lagadec

Mulberry’s Employment Law Solicitors was founded in 2007 by Zoe.

zoe-lagadecZoe is a solicitor with a genuine passion and love for what she does. Since advocating for herself in arguments with the headmaster at school as to her right to freedom of expression (and therefore not to wear uniform) she has developed the finely tuned art of winning arguments, negotiation and dispute resolution. Her track record for fast, inexpensive settlements is impressive as is her tenacity in pursuing or defending Tribunal claims.

Zoe qualified in 2001 with leading City law firm, Travers Smith. By 2007 she had set up her own practice based on her vision of providing a a high level of personal service to those in need of accurate and up to date employment law advice at rates that are accessible to all. Her practice thrived from day one and is now one of the leading employment law practices in the South East.

Zoe has been described by clients as “the best kind of lawyer – a sharp legal mind and great interpersonal skills” as “a consummate professional” and as “sharp, articulate and efficient.”

Zoe has successfully brought and defended a wide range of employment claims including complex and nationally reported cases involving human rights, large class actions following mass redundancies, high value equal pay claims, sex, race and disability discrimination claims, whistle-blowing claims and high court litigation.

Zoe’s clients include national and international companies, charities, not for profit organisations, trade unions, trusts and many SME’s. She also provides employment law advice and assistance to a wide and diverse range of employees, from casual workers to senior executives. Zoe was a Senior Lecturer in Employment Law at the University of Brighton from 2008 until 2011 and is an experienced CIPD trainer. She regularly holds seminars and workshops on all areas of employment law. In 2010 Zoe was a Visiting Fellow at the School of Industrial and Labour Relations, Cornell University, New York where she expanded her knowledge of international labour law. In 2015 Zoe was the advisor to The Guardian newspaper in relation to its widely reported undercover expose of a national retailer Sports Direct who had breached, amongst other things, the national minimum wage and in 2016 Zoe advised the BBC in connection with its investigation into working practices at national retailer ASOS.  Zoe has advised many other media companies and is always willing to provide her expertise pro bono where the public interest is served.

Zoe is a member of the Employment Lawyers Association, the International Society for Labour Law and Social Security and the Industrial Law Society.

Outside work Zoe’s second love is yoga and she has recently qualified as a children’s yoga teacher. She also loves nothing more than playing with her daughter, who helps to ensure she smiles and laughs every day.
