Pam advised on a highly complex and sensitive matter. Her advice was excellent. Through her involvement, we reached a successful outcome that significantly reduced the Association’s financial exposure. She showed great support to the Association and its senior officers at a challenging time.

Pam Sidhu has been our sole trusted legal adviser on UK employment law issues for the last approximately 6 years. She has advised on the full spectrum of employment law issues from day to day HR matters to more complex and highly sensitive matters. She collaborated very well with our team in the UK and has worked closely with our headquarters in Rotterdam. I have found her to be a very skilled professional, who gives solid advice. Pam is always quick in her responses and I have enjoyed our cooperation.

Pam advised on employment law issues in relation to some difficult and complex negotiations. I am in no doubt that we would not have achieved it without Pam’s help and expertise. I enjoyed working with Pam; her advice was at all times clear, comprehensive and to the point.
