Partner in Employment
Judith has over 25 years’ experience in the public and private sector specialising in employment law and employee relations. Judith also practices as an employment mediator; this balance brings a special blend of insights for reducing employment-related conflict, avoiding unnecessary litigation and delivering good value employment law services.
Since qualifying, Judith has worked for Simmons & Simmons LLP, the Engineering Employers’ Federation and Salans. A tenacious litigator, Judith is equally at home with non-contentious project work – such as guiding an organisation through a business transfer or merger, the employment law and employee relations challenges of a major pension change exercise, or a root and branch review of employment practices. Whether in mediation, non-contentious work or litigation, Judith’s key skill is staying focussed on what is really important.
She also has a deep interest in industrial relations law and practice and workplace pensions (having been a pensions trustee for more than 10 years and she holds the PMI award in trusteeship).
Judith Hogarth aims to provide a high standard of mediation service at all times, from the initial point of contact for a mediation, through to the end of the Mediation Day. Despite this, a client may feel that service levels have fallen short of expectations and it is important to provide a means of settling any complaints to everyone’s satisfaction. Please download a copy of the Complaints Policy below. All mediations are governed by the Mediation Agreement, which is signed by all parties and the mediator at the beginning of the Mediation Day. A copy of the standard form template Mediation Agreement is available on request.
