Sophia specialises in employment and commercial law. Sophia has also been instructed on injunction applications in the High Court in the past year both in her own right and as junior counsel. These include urgent applications resulting from breach of restrictive covenants and fiduciary duties and misuse of confidential information as well as an application to restrain threatened industrial action (Argos v Unite the Union [2017]). Sophia also has a keen interest in whistleblowing, equal pay and discrimination claims and has appeared in the Employment Appeal Tribunal on numerous occasions. Most recently, she successfully defended an important appeal relating to time limits in discrimination claims (Edomobi v La Retraite RC Girls School [2016] UKEAT 0180_16_1511).

Having initially qualified as a Solicitor at Linklaters LLP in 2011, Sophia is regularly praised for her commercial and pragmatic approach to her cases. Clients say she is “very impressive” and outshines the opposition in her oral advocacy and attitude. Her written work is described as “excellent”.
