Nicky Cockerill

Sector Chair
Employment Solicitor, Buckles Solicitors LLP

Nicola has specialised exclusively in employment law since qualifying as a solicitor in July 2008. She advises clients on a range of issues including contracts, policies/procedures, disciplinary, grievances, dismissals and discrimination (with a particular interest in disability).

Nicola’s experience is varied. She has spent time working in a niche private practice firm locally, in-house for a number of years dealing with tribunal claims, and a short period of time in a busy human resource team for a large national white-goods manufacturer. She feels these experiences have given her a valuable understanding of the real issues faced on a daily basis by employers and employees enabling her to engage in an empathetic manner with clients.
