Alana Penkethman

Alana recently provided my husband and I legal advice regarding an issue encountered in the workplace. She was a great support to us during a difficult time, explaining the facts in a clear and concise way but also showing compassion in her approach. I would recommend Alana to anyone requiring representation regarding an employment matter and as such Parker Bullen will be our solicitors of choice for future legal needs.

I am a Legal Executive specialising in employment law.  I advise both employers and employees on a broad range of employment matters, including terms of employment, disputes within the workplace and, when the contract can no longer be continued, settlement agreements and tribunal claims.  I understand that a good working relationship between employer and employee is essential to the success of a business.  I also recognise that, as we spend the majority of our time at work, it is important for employment contracts to be fair and for any problems to be resolved as quickly and as amicably as possible. 

I advise on:

  • Employment contracts and directors’ service agreements

  • Staff handbooks and policies

  • Early conciliation of employment disputes

  • Employment Tribunal claims

  • Dismissal, disciplinary, and poor performance procedures

  • Grievance procedures

  • Settlement agreements

  • Discrimination, equality and diversity

  • Maternity and family friendly rights

  • Whistleblowing

  • Working time issues

  • Restrictive covenants

  • TUPE, outsourcing and restructuring

  • Redundancy

  • Bonus and commission arrangements

  • Boardroom disputes


I started as a junior with Parkes Brown in 2007. I began training as a Legal Executive with Blake Lapthorn in 2008 and qualified with Abbey Legal in 2011. I joined Parker Bullen in 2014.
