Tan has gained valuable insight into employer working practices from secondments to two large organisations and she continues to enjoy a close working relationship with human resources departments advising on the impact of all aspects of employment law in the workplace.
She advises on all areas of employment law from organisational restructures and contractual variations to business acquisitions and sales, including dealing with due diligence and warranties and any complex TUPE-related issues. Tan regularly represents employers at tribunal hearings, which include complex discrimination claims.
She is also an accredited trainer and delivers bespoke training to employers.
Tan spent several years gaining extensive experience in mortgage-related and commercial litigation. She developed a particular interest in professional negligence actions on behalf of high-street banks and building societies and acted in the largest ever case-managed litigation.
