Shereen Murphy

Head of Employment Law
Shereen Murphy Head of Employment Law


I have specialised in employment law for some 13 years now, having begun my career working in employment legal aid after completing my LPC at the College of Law in Chester.

I was initially a Claimant representative, assisting Claimants with all types of employment tribunal claims up to and including representation at Employment Tribunal hearings.

During this time I also taught employment law (level 3 and 6) for CILEx at the Law Academy in Liverpool.

After Legal aid for employment law was abolished in 2013 I studied for and obtained my CIPD level 5 in HR Management and moved over to Respondent work, advising various sized Respondent businesses across all industries in relation to every aspect of employment law.

Most recently I worked as an Advocate, representing Respondent clients at Employment Tribunal hearings up and down the country, including Case Management Hearings, substantive preliminary hearings, reconsideration hearings, and full merits hearing.

As I have extensive experience in advising both Claimant and Respondent clients across all areas of employment law it enables me to have a thorough and well rounded approach to any matter I am instructed in relation to.


Shereen holds a Law degree from Liverpool John Moores University and a Master's (LLM) in Business and Commercial Law from the same institution. She also successfully completed the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law in Chester (now known as the University of Law).
