Fiona Hewitt

Senior Associate and Head of Employment and Commercial Disputes

Career History

Qualifying in 2002, I am an experienced Solicitor and Accredited Mediator specialising in employment law and commercial dispute resolution including corporate support, HR training and Tribunal claims, shareholder and partnership disputes, PR/media and reputation management. I am a huge fan of mediation; litigation should always be a last resort but where that is the best option, I’ve been told that I am like a terrier with a rat. I think that’s a compliment.

Fiona and the Commercial Litigation team are listed in the Legal 500 2022 edition. Being recommended by Legal 500 provides clients with an independent assessment of our ability, gives a flavour of who we are and what sets us apart from other law firms.

Having trained at a ground-breaking firm, I then worked at a national law firm before I went on to co-found a firm in which my department was listed in the Legal 500. I also worked for myself for a period of around 6 years before returning to private practice to lead a large department at a regional firm.

I am proud to be a Committee Member of the Law Society’s Lawyers with Disabilities Division. I am Honorary Solicitor for Team Endeavour Racing, part of the Invictus Games Foundation - find out more.
