Siobhan Fitzgerald, a partner in TLT’s national employment team, has received the honour of being appointed a Fee-Paid Judge of the Employment Tribunal by the Lord Chancellor.

She will continue in her current role as a partner at TLT, and commence working as a judge in the Employment Tribunal’s Midlands West region based in Birmingham.

Siobhan joined TLT in 2006 and was made a partner in 2017. She is listed as a ‘Next Generation Partner’ in the 2022 edition of the prestigious Legal 500 directory, which also ranks TLT’s employment team as Tier 1. She advises TLT’s clients on all aspects of employment law, including in particular the application of TUPE and complex whistleblowing and discrimination claims.

Of the appointment, she said, “This has been a career-long ambition of mine, and the timing couldn’t be better as the Tribunal faces such a significant backlog of cases following the pandemic. I’m glad that I can help to ease some of that pressure by joining this intake of new judges, and look forward to applying my knowledge and understanding of the law to my cases.”

Siobhan features on TLT’s topical podcast, Employment Law Focus, with recent episodes including employee wellbeing post-pandemic, the impact of workplace technology on employees, working parents, employee monitoring and unconscious bias.
