A well-known employment lawyer has moved across Birmingham to join Knights.

Adele Hayfield joined legal and professional services business Knights this week as a Partner – bolstering a growing team in Birmingham.

She brings 16 years of employment law experience, having worked with some of the biggest businesses across the country during that time.

Adele has knowledge of all aspects of employment law and provides strategic advice and day-to-day operational advice to clients with a particular focus on strategic advisory matters.

This includes senior departures, business restructures and change programmes as well as sensitive grievances and investigations. She has advised high-profile clients across the automotive, logistics, manufacturing and retail sectors.

Knights’ employment team is made up of a team of expert lawyers across the country – and Adele joins a growing group of employment lawyers based in Birmingham.

Adele Hayfield, Partner at Knights, said:

“I’m really excited to have joined Knights. It’s been so interesting to start getting to know a new and interesting business - pushing outside of my comfort zone.

“Everyone’s been so welcoming and I can’t wait to start working with Knights’ team, and our brilliant clients, here in Birmingham and across the country.”

Sarah Perry, Knights’ Client Services Director in Birmingham, said:

“We’re building a brilliant team in Birmingham and our doors are open for more talent to join Knights.

“Adele is a fantastic addition to Knights. She’ll be able to build on the relationships she’s built over 16 years, and help us to build new ones.”
