Edward O'Brien

Associate
Litigation and Employment

01258 483601

What’s your area of expertise?

I am an associate solicitor in the litigation and disputes team at Blanchards Bailey and specialise in employment law. I work with individuals and employers, ranging from local family businesses to national companies, and advise on all aspects of employment law and HR matters.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

Whether I’m working with a business to optimise its HR policies or helping a wronged employee fight for justice, it’s the clients that make my job as rewarding as it is. I find that there’s nothing more satisfying than helping someone overcome a problem or achieve their goal.

What makes you tick?

I am a problem solver and relish the challenge of finding solutions to thorny issues, and these sorts of challenges are part and parcel of work involving litigation and employment law. Creative thinking also helps me outside the office, such as when I’m composing bass riffs with my band or baking with chillies and chocolate in the kitchen.


The Legal 500 said Edward is ‘very thorough, diligent and has good legal instincts’. Read more about this here.
