Colleague Spotlight

Lesley Rennie, Senior Employment Solicitor


Lesley gained her LLB (Hons) and Diploma in Legal Practice from the University of Aberdeen, qualifying as a solicitor in May 2011. During her legal traineeship, she developed an early interest in employment law and continued to specialise in this upon qualification.

 Lesley trained and spent her first years post-qualification at a well-regarded Aberdeen firm, with her work being primarily employer-led with a focus on offshore oil and gas and marine clients, enabling her to gain considerable experience in dealing with jurisdictional, marine and expatriate employment issues. 

Lesley thereafter moved to Empire (later Law At Work and now WorkNest) in the Summer of 2013. 

With experience across a wealth of sectors, including retail, oil and gas, marine, care, construction and agriculture and a keen eye for detail, she provides strategic and pragmatic advice on a breadth of employment law matters, including niche areas such as employment status, restrictive covenant agreements, employee data protection issues and the employment law considerations in mergers and acquisitions.
