Karen Harvie joins Aberdein Considine’s employment law team in Edinburgh
Aberdein Considine has appointed Karen Harvie to the position of senior associate following a significant period of growth.
Ms Harvie brings over 30 years’ experience in a range of legal fields, but with a particular focus on employment law. She will be based at the firm’s flagship Multrees Walk office in Edinburgh.
Ms Harvie has worked for a number of national law firms, and has extensive tribunal advocacy experience, specialising in complex employment disputes as well as large scale mergers and business reorganisations.
Recent cases have seen her involved in advising the transferee housing association on a transfer of engagements under the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act, acting for two respondent companies in a multi-employer/multi respondent TUPE claim and advising a charity in a dispute arising out of a loss of project grant funding.
Sally-Anne Anderson, partner and head of employment law at Aberdein Considine said: “Karen has a fantastic reputation and she is highly respected in her field.
“We’ve seen this area grow significantly over the last couple of years, and we’re delighted Karen has decided join the team and help us continue to provide businesses large and small with the counsel and support they’ll need in an ever more complex and regulated environment.”
