Melanie studied for her law degree at Cardiff University, before returning to Cornwall in 2006 to take up a paralegal position at Nalders Solicitors. She continued to study for her legal practice course on a part-time basis at the University of the West of England in Bristol before qualifying as a solicitor in 2010.


Melanie has a decade of experience diligently advising our clients. She specialises in employment matters and personal injury claims. 


Melanie competently deals with all aspects of employment law and regularly acts for both employers and employees in a host of contentious and non-contentious matters that occur throughout the employment relationship - from drafting contracts and dealing with any disciplinary and grievance issues that may occur, through to negotiating exits and dealing with employment tribunal claims. She also has a particular interest in problems that occur post-termination (for example if your former employee moves to a competitor).


Melanie represents our clients in both the county court and employment tribunal. She is a strong communicator who prides herself on ensuring that her clients understand the real issue, whilst working to the highest professional standards and finding the best way to meet individual objectives. 


Conferences, training and seminars

Melanie recently did a seminar for local GP practices discussing employment matters related to the field.

Hi Melanie, just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you have done for me, I could not have done it without you!! At least now I can hold my head high and know I was in true right and followed the correct procedures. You were amazing! Thank you again.

You are a superstar!

I found our meeting useful and cathartic, I'm not sure I've laughed so much at a solicitors office before... thank you once again!

I believe I am much clearer in my understanding of what I am presently able to do.

Once again, I am so grateful for all your efforts on my behalf. You have been really kind and sympathetic, and the award was solely due to your tenacity and professional expertise. It was very, very welcome.

Thank you so much for your mail, have to admit it came as a surprise!!! However, with enormous thanks to you, your expertise and 'determination' , it is a relief to know there is now a conclusion; and that there will not be a court 'battle'.

Aw thank you Mel you made it very painless for me!

Found the whole process easy and reassuring. Thanks Melanie for all your help.
