Jude is the International Practice Development Lawyer for the Global Employment Group at DLA Piper. Jude qualified as an employment lawyer in 1998 at Denton Hall (as it was then) and worked at Baker McKenzie and Addleshaw Goddard before joining DLA Piper in 2013.  Jude’s current role is focused on the delivery of global employment law services working with colleagues across the 40+ countries where the firm has offices.  Jude loves the ability to combine her passion for employment law with all things international.

Jude has been an active member of ELA since she was a junior lawyer; having gained so much from her membership over the years, she was keen to get involved herself.  Jude was a member of the training committee from 2008-2013, and has been on the international committee since 2013.  In 2016, Jude was elected member-at-large of ManCo, and in 2018 became Company Secretary, ensuring that ELA meets its statutory obligations, advising on the articles of association and membership issues.  Jude is privileged to be able to continue to support ELA, contributing to ELA’s policy and direction and helping other members to benefit from the great opportunities that ELA membership provides.
