Helen Boddy - What makes me tick


I am passionate about employment law and HR legal issues because possibly more than any other area of law it is constantly evolving and developing – there is always something new to think about. Employment puts law into a social context. It can be highly political, it is always about economics, but more than anything it has human interest and as such presents unique challenges in a commercial environment.


My strength is in dispute resolution although my mantra has long been that ‘prevention is better than cure.’ My objective is to equip my corporate clients with the tools they need to manage employment risks. Acting for both employers and employees, I believe that I have a broader understanding of the dynamics of the employment relationship.


I qualified as a solicitor and have been in practice since 1988. Following a number of years in the City, I was a partner at an international commercial law firm with offices in Reigate and the City as well as overseas. I then spent three years as a partner of a large regional firm. In recent years I have had management/board level roles which have equipped me for running my own business. I have been at the ‘coal face’ and have practical hands on experience of dealing with commercial and professional issues and HR.


On a personal level, I am enthusiastic and approachable. I am a pragmatic and well balanced individual. I value my integrity. I am approachable and sociable.


Out of work I enjoy outdoor pursuits with my family and friends. I am vitally interested in my children’s education. I spend a lot of time on the touchline watching the minis at Old Reigatians RFC and at Reigate Priory FC. I love theatre and music and am learning to play the saxophone.
