Top-100 law firm Bevan Brittan has boosted its health and care expertise with the appointment of an experienced employment partner.
Oonagh Sharma, who joins from Capsticks, will work across Bevan Brittan’s market leading independent health and NHS teams.
She has significant experience of representing private and public health and care clients at employment tribunals, advising on the full range of contentious and non-contentious employment matters including whistleblowing, change management, disciplinary and grievance issues. Based in Bevan Brittan’s London office, she will work with independent health and NHS clients nationwide.
Oonagh is the third health and care specialist to join Bevan Brittan in recent months. Her arrival follows the appointment of partners Amanda Wright-Kluger and Amrita Hurst to its Health & Care - Regulatory team.
Commenting on her appointment, Oonagh Sharma said: “The reputation of Bevan Brittan’s employment team, and independent health and NHS practices, is outstanding. This was a natural move for me to progress my career. Health and care organisations in the private and public sector face many employment law challenges and I look forward to working with clients across the country to help them navigate these issues.”
Jodie Sinclair, Senior Partner and Head of Employment, Pensions and Immigration at Bevan Brittan, added: “We have experienced a decade of growth at Bevan Brittan and have ambitious plans for the future. Alongside our immigration and pensions teams, our employment law practice supports some of the biggest independent health, care and NHS organisations in the country. They will benefit from Oonagh’s expertise, she will be a great asset and we are delighted that she has joined us.”
The appointment comes after yet another successful year for the top-100 law firm. It reported ten consecutive years of revenue and profit growth in the 2022/23 financial year.
