Julie Temple

Partner, Head of BLHR and Employment Team

Whoever the client and whatever the case, I give advice which is professional and takes into account all legal points, but tailored to the individual client’s needs. My advice is practical and easy to understand. I am frequently recommended by individual and commercial clients. I am based in our Colchester Office, and am available for a free 15 minute chat over the phone on 01206 217318.

I wanted to be a solicitor for as long as I can remember and chose to specialise in employment law because it was, and continues, to change and challenge.

As Head of the BLHR and Employment Team, I am responsible for supporting and developing the team and driving marketing initiatives forward. I also continue to provide the professional and personal service which my clients rely on and expect.

My main focus has been on advising commercial clients on a broad range of topics, including holiday pay, the implementation of GDPR and acting on a number of restrictive covenant cases for both individuals and commercial clients.

I am an affiliate member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and have been a longstanding member of the Essex and Ipswich Branch committee of the CIPD, speaking regularly at local CIPD events on employment topics, mainly in Essex and East London.

I have a LLB (Hons) Degree and passed the Legal Practice Course with a Distinction.

I am a trustee of the Ron Shepherd Trust which awards CIPD students. In addition, I am a governor at St Margaret’s Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School.

I am a mum to four lovely girls which leaves little spare time, but what little I do have, I spend with friends, with a camera never far away. I enjoy running and I completed the Ipswich half-marathon for charity.
