Nicola is global head of the Employment and Incentives Group and is a very well-known figure in the employment world with significant experience across the breadth of employment law.

Nicola is particularly interested in effective whistleblowing; she provided feedback to the Whistleblowing Commission and initiated the Linklaters Listen Up! Campaign which brought together leading academics and figures in the whistleblowing space in a panel discussion.

She was also listed as a top 20 LGBT ally by OUTstanding in October 2014 and 2015.
