Liz Burley

Liz is a highly experienced employment lawyer who can advise on the whole range of HR and employment law issues.

Liz qualified in 1996 when the world of employment law and HR looked and felt very different!  She trained at a regional firm in Wolverhampton where she developed a keen interest in employment cases.  Once qualified, she went on to work for national firm Weightmans where she became very experienced in defending Tribunal claims for employers in the hospitality and retail sector.  These included one of the largest UK national pub and hotel chains, a national off licence chain, and several big restaurant chains.  Liz also handled road traffic litigation for a number of large insurers.

From Weightmans she joined Eversheds in Birmingham and broadened her experience of non-contentious employment law and became a regular speaker and trainer.

After a 10-year career break to focus on family life, Liz returned to practice in 2015 and has relished getting back up to speed and fighting fit as an employment lawyer!  Her time away from legal practice has enabled her to bring valuable life experience to the advice she gives.

Liz advises both employers and employees on contentious and non-contentious matters and believes that seeing things from both sides of the same coin makes her a better advisor for all her clients.  She is particularly skilled at advising on disability and mental health issues in the workplace, and employee data and privacy.

Liz prides herself on being an excellent communicator, and on her personable approach and her ability to cut through the issues to provide clear advice and solutions.  She is known for being at her client’s side throughout as well as a fearsome negotiator and advocate when required.
