HR, employment law, and health and safety consultancy, Howarths, has made two new appointments to its growing employment law team.

The company has appointed Anna Schiavetta as employment law solicitor and Anna Nelson as employment law advisor. Both will report to the firm’s head of employment law and business immigration, Charlotte Geesin.

Ms Schievetta has joined Howarths from a UK based technology and innovation company, where she was a trainee solicitor.

Ms Nelson joins from a UK wide insurance broking and risk advisory firm, where she worked as an employment law consultant.

The two appointments will bolster Howarths’ growing employment law team, following a period of growth for the business which has seen it welcome almost 100 new clients in the last 12 months. 

Gavin Howarth, managing director at Howarths, said: “The last year has certainly presented significant and complex employment law challenges for businesses that have had to navigate unchartered territory such as furlough and the job retention scheme, with many realising the crucial role expert HR and employment law advice plays in ensuring business continuity.

“Many of our clients have limited HR and employment law provision in-house and continue to look to us to provide ongoing guidance and advice as the pandemic plays out, so I am delighted to welcome Anna and Anna to the team as their skills and experience will be instrumental in helping us do so.”
