about…Belinda Lester

Name: Belinda Lester

Practice Area: Employment Law

Location: London

Contact: email b.lester@lionsheadlaw.co.uk  or call 07808 727369

Since qualifying as a solicitor in 1999 I have worked exclusively in the area of employment law and I am a member of the Employment Lawyers’ Association. I have frequently been commended by my clients for being clear, concise, practical and solution focused whilst at the same time being empathetic and supportive.

Although I have expertise in all areas of employment law, whether that be in relation to contentious matters or simply advising or drafting, I have a real passion for dispute resolution and my background in psychology, which I studied at university before converting to law, helps me in this area. I advise regularly on settlement agreements and am commended for being able to provide comprehensive advice on these even when fast turnaround is required. I am a tough negotiator and (I am told) a fearsome litigator.

However, whether I am representing individuals or companies in litigation or just providing advice or reviewing/drafting a contract or handbook, I will always have my client’s desired outcome at the forefront of my mind. Client care and excellent service are my top priorities. In my opinion, every client should feel like my only client and, so far, I believe I have achieved this objective.

“The level of service at Lionhead Law is excellent. Our company have worked with Belinda Lester for many years and the legal advice is always extremely professional, clear and concise. Belinda understands our business and the retainer service offers consistent support and expert guidance on all employment related matters. To receive such a high quality, prompt and efficient level of service whenever required is very reassuring.  It is an absolute pleasure working with Belinda and the retainer service provided is invaluable. I would highly recommend.”

“ ‘Always here for you’ is Lionshead Law’s strap line and it’s been totally true…Lionshead Law helped me find the best way to move forward, at a very difficult time, when I needed to act fast in an area which was completely unfamiliar to me. Belinda Lester’s expertise and supportive approach was exceptional. If I ever needed an employment lawyer again I would not even consider using anybody else.”
