South West law firm Mogers Drewett has started the year by announcing the appointment of an in-house Human Resources consultant who will expand the HR and Employment Legal Services the company currently offers its clients.
Lucy Cotterell, who has 20 years’ experience in HR, has joined the team as a client HR consultant after an extensive and varied career within the HR team at Bath College that recently included overseeing the strategic and operational merger of two colleges and a restructure of the workforce. In her role at Mogers Drewett, Lucy will work with clients who need additional support, particularly during times of restructuring, helping to reassure and alleviate pressure points as needed.
Sean McDonough, Partner and Employment Law specialist at Mogers Drewett said “Having Lucy join the employment law team as a HR consultant with significant client side experience and insight is a real asset and will be truly valuable to us. We are seeing more and more of our clients looking to us to offer a more integrated HR and legal advisory service. It is a natural expansion of our services, particularly as we have a growing number of clients who do not have the capacity within their internal HR departments to cope with any major business restructures and therefore at times require both legal and HR support. Being able to offer this under one roof means we are able to provide an efficient and joined up service for our clients.”
Mogers Drewett offers a full HR and employment service including handling mergers and acquisitions, employee disputes, employee resourcing, employee relation strategies and training and development.
