Our People

Carol Sketchley – business owner and principal solicitor

Carol has been a solicitor for over thirty years. Initially, she worked in property as partner in charge of the conveyancing and mortgage departments for a large Coventry firm, then moving on to employment law in 1990. In 2000 she set up her own niche employment law practice working from home in Balsall Common and in 2014 the business had expanded sufficiently to enable a move to commercial premises at Holly Farm Business Park. Carol places a high premium on providing timely and cost effective advice to both corporate and private clients. She has successfully dealt with numerous claims involving unfair dismissal, wrongful dismissal, discrimination, TUPE, unlawful deductions from wages, employment tribunals, settlement agreements, contracts and terms & conditions of employment. Carol has a keen interest in equestrian matters and the majority of her down time is spent in looking after her family, horses and dogs.
