The Legal 500 – The Clients Guide to Law Firms The Legal 500 – The Clients Guide to Law Firms

Helena Oxley


As a solicitor in the BLHR and Employment team, I offer clients personable, professional and pragmatic advice.

I love working in employment law as every day really is different! I am a lawyer, confidant and, on occasion, a journalist keeping up with and informing others of the latest changes in the law. Aside from family and friends, employment is at the centre of our lives. I want to understand the law to support employers to implement best practice and support employees and employers through the highs and lows of the employment process.

I assist BLHR clients with contentious and non-contentious day-to-day employment matters. I also handle settlement agreements for individuals, support clients through disciplinary and grievance processes, and defend and pursue claims on behalf of employers and employees.

In my spare time, I love playing and watching basketball and watching musicals and opera at the theatre. I also have an interest in mentoring which is something I am keen to pursue in the future.
