As a Solicitor in the BLHR and Employment team, I always strive to do the best for my clients and provide them with a level of support and reassurance at what can be a stressful time. I take the time to understand my clients’ particular requirements and use my experience to deliver practical, tailored advice in a cost effective and personable manner. I am based in our Chelmsford office, and am available for a free, no obligation 15 minute telephone conversation on 01268 244150.
I love my job due to the variation which employment work brings, and also being able to meet and work with different clients as part of my role.
I am experienced in dealing with a vast range of all types of employment matters from an employee and employer perspective. My days vary, as one day I could be advising an employer on how to handle a disagreement between colleagues, and the next day I could be in an Employment Tribunal providing representation on behalf of an individual at a Preliminary Hearing for a discrimination case.
I advise both employers and employees, and clients who are part of our BLHR scheme. I am responsible for delivering a professional service and for contributing to the promotion and development of the Employment and BLHR team. I regularly speak at presentations on various employment topics, which the team delivers throughout the year.
In my spare time, I enjoy travelling and going to music gigs. I also play the occasional game of golf from time to time when the weather is good!

Employment and BLHR team
The Employment and BLHR team listens to the needs and objectives of our clients, whether they are individuals seeking advice about their employment or a potential claim or a business needing guidance on how to resolve a situation with an employee. Our advice is commercial and pragmatic whilst taking into account the legalities.
All members of the team are happy to discuss the background of your situation over the telephone for an initial 15 minutes, at no cost, to see if the matter is something we can assist with and if future costs are worthwhile for you.
What our clients say
Charlotte Holman was my solicitor in an employment case. It was a difficult time for me and she was very understanding and supportive, she was extremely efficient and she made the whole experience excellent, she listened to everything and genuinely cared. I would recommend Charlotte to everyone a real credit to the company and a fantastic service.
The team at Birkett Long has a calmness in their approach. Their advice is concise, to the point and takes account of any risk. You know you're in good hands.Client testimonial from the legal 500
I needed a solicitor following my redundancy, after nearly forty years at the same firm. Charlotte Holman provided me with the legal advice that my previous employer required before finalization. She went through and explained the document that I was required to sign, she was courteous, thorough, and above all very knowledgeable. I would have no hesitation in recommending her services to others.
Very honest, very capable. I can't rate them highly enough.Client testimonial from the Legal 500
My go to solicitor was Charlotte Holman. Charlotte was not only extremely well trained, but her approach to handling me as her client was nothing short of fantastic. Nothing was ever any issue for Charlotte, out of hours telephone calls returned out of hours, professionalism, hard working, supportive would be the words to sum up Charlotte's approach to her work and clients.Legal 500
