Solicitors LLP, has been selected by Cumbria CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personal Development) to deliver its Employment Law events for the next three years.

Burnetts’ Employment & HR Team will collaborate with Cumbria CIPD to deliver bi-annual Employment Law Updates and a Discipline Masterclass and Grievance Masterclass each year, from now through until 2025. The objective is to assist in providing employers in the region with prompt, practical and commercial legal advice to enable businesses to focus on growth and development.

Leading Employment Lawyer and thought leader, Anna Lovett, a Senior Associate at Burnetts who specialises in Employment Law for the commercial sector in Cumbria, will spearhead and deliver the events, which are set to be entertaining, informative and a little unusual, drawing on famous TV themes and paying homage to well-known shows such as Bullseye and Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway. Amongst the fun will be informative advice on key issues facing the HR community.

Anna said: “We have worked closely with Cumbria CIPD over the years and we are delighted to be continuing to collaborate on these events going forward.

"It is imperative that lawyers and HR can share ideas and developments in order to work together to bring long–term solutions to promote business growth and ensure that workplace practices maximise the talent of the workforce.

"We are committed to ensuring that the Cumbrian economy is a hub of progressive and market-leading practice when it comes to employment relations. Collaborating with the CIPD is a keystone of this process”

Mel Kinsella, Chair for Cumbria CIPD said: “CIPD Cumbria Branch Committee is pleased to be working in collaboration with Burnetts Solicitors on events that we know are popular and well supported across Cumbria.”

The first events will be an Employment Law update and a Discipline Masterclass and these will both take place this November.

The dates and venues will be announced shortly via the Events page on the Burnetts website:
