- Senior Associate
Shabana has extensive experience of advising clients in a wide range of sectors including retail, education and hospitality, and the public sector. She has worked for large household names since the beginning of her career, and this, combined with extended secondments to a client’s in-house legal team, has given her a sound understanding of the commercial drivers behind many of the employment law challenges clients face. She has experience of advising on a comprehensive range of employment law issues, including senior hires, termination of employment, discrimination, redundancy and reorganisation, TUPE and restrictive covenants.
Shabana also heads up the Walker Morris Business Immigration team and has over 10 years’ experience of advising on business immigration issues and assisting clients with the complex process of hiring talent from outside the UK. She assists clients with sponsor licence applications and compliance, as well as visa applications for migrant workers and their dependants under the points based system. Shabana regularly advises overseas clients on the appropriate route of entry into the UK for existing staff to support their business expansion into the UK, as well as the requirements for short-term visit visas. She has spoken at numerous events and published a series of articles on the impact Brexit will have on the recruitment of EU workers.
