Press Release: Truth Legal Strengthen Employment Law Team With Key Hires

Press Release – June 2019

A HARROGATE firm of solicitors has bolstered its growing employment law specialism with two new senior recruits.

Victoria Notman and Katherine Swinn bring more than 30 years of expertise to Truth Legal, based on Victoria Avenue in the town centre.


Their appointments double the number of lawyers in the company’s employment law team, which is spearheaded by Director Navya Shekhar and completed by Mirek Ksiezarek.

Truth Legal represents both employees and employers locally and throughout the UK on wide-ranging employment law issues, spanning unfair dismissal and redundancies through to racial, sex and disability discrimination.

Founder of Truth Legal, Andrew Gray, said: “Employment law is one of our key specialisms. The skills of Victoria and Katherine will add further capacity and capability to our team at a time of growing demand.

“This has been triggered in part by the lifting of fees for those bringing employment tribunal claims, which has resulted in a surge of claims.

“We have also witnessed a rising need for employment law advice tailored to small businesses, and this is a trend we expect will gather momentum as more changes to legislation come into force.”

Victoria, who formerly worked at Raworths in Harrogate, has focused on employment law for more than two decades, having honed her expertise with international law firm Pinsent Mason and top 50 UK law firm Mills & Reeve.

Her career CV has seen her supporting blue-chip corporations, NHS Trusts, SMEs, charitable organisations and a broad range of individuals.

Harrogate-born Katherine, who also plays a key role in Truth Legal’s litigation team, joined from Watson Woodhouse having previously worked for Hutchinson & Buchanan – the longest-established High Street firm in Ripon – for a decade.  She is also an experienced advocate in attending County Court hearings.

Founded in 2012 in Harrogate, Truth Legal set out to break new ground as an ethical, tenacious and affordable law firm – and has grown to a team of 18 as a result. As well as employment law, the firm specialises in personal injury, clinical negligence and property disputes

Ethically driven

Truth Legal was founded on the idea of putting ethics at the centre of legal services. 

Ethical working is at our core: in treating people fairly, being open and honest, and taking social responsibility. We sponsor a large section of woodland near Harrogate, planting a tree for every one of the clients we represent.

Real lawyers, real people

We believe a good lawyer shouldn’t just offer technical expertise, but a real understanding of what you’re going through and how best to help you. 

Above all, our team are dedicated to their clients – whether that is guiding them through legal complexities, securing compensation, or simply fighting for what’s right.

We won’t blind you with jargon – we give advice clearly. And when technical terms can’t be avoided we explain them in full.
