About HMK Legal
Welcome to HMK Legal, an employment law consultancy based in the North East of England. My name is Helen Kay, and I am an experienced employment law specialist, and Director of HMK Legal.
My aim in setting up HMK Legal is to provide a personal, high quality employment law service at a price that businesses, third sector organisations and individuals can afford.
I converted to Law following a varied career in scientific research in various arenas including the health sector, academia and the Scientific Civil Service. After qualifying as a solicitor in 2005, I then specialised in Employment law for over 8 years before leaving private practice to set up HMK Legal.
My broad-ranging work experiences have given me a valuable insight into a variety of working environments and the opportunity to work with different types of people. I have worked with all sizes of business from owner-managed businesses to PLCs, and across many different sectors including healthcare, further education, technology, research & development, manufacturing, retail, hospitality, IT, service providers, charities and not-for-profit organisations. Whilst I acted predominantly for employers during my time in private practice, I also advised individuals, particularly at senior and/or professional level.
I have frequently been praised by clients for my clear, pragmatic and commercial advice; my approachability, thoroughness, tenacity and attention to detail; and for my excellent customer service. And not least for my common sense!
