Tina plays a double role

We have welcomed a new employment solicitor who brings a whole host of skills to our team. Tina Chander has joined our Employment Law department at our offices in Euston Way, Telford – but she’s also a qualified barrister.

“I am still qualified as a barrister, but I decided to study further and become dual-qualified as a solicitor as well.This was because I developed a keen interest in employment law, and I wanted to be able to use the skills I had to help employers with practical solutions and employee disputes.

“Joining Martin-Kaye is a great opportunity to use all my knowledge and experience for the benefit of companies in the Shropshire area and beyond, and I’m looking forward to working with such a progressive team,” said Tina, who has spent most of her life in Telford.

And it’s not only in practising law that Tina has an in-depth knowledge thanks to her Masters degree in Advanced Legal Practice – she also has degrees in law with psychology, and clinical criminology.

John Mehtam, who leads the Martin-Kaye Employment Law team, said: “
Tina is an invaluable addition to our practice thanks to the training she has received and the skills she has developed. We believe her knowledge will help us to build on the relationships we already have with our clients, and help to attract new companies who are looking for professional help when it comes to difficult employment issues.”
