Who We Are

Ayesha Casely-Hayford

Head of Employment

Ayesha Casely-Hayford

Ayesha qualified as a solicitor of the Supreme Court of England and Wales in 2008.

She began her legal career at Capsticks Solicitors LLP, which is a leading niche law firm specialising in the healthcare sector. Ayesha is a discrimination law expert with experience of appearing regularly at Employment Tribunal as an advocate. She also advises extensively on contractual terms and agreements, assisting amicable resolution of workplace disputes.

Ayesha has developed her practice to include representation of employees, small businesses and individuals. Her clients and colleagues describe her as trustworthy, honest, full of integrity, and good humour.

After working solely for employers for a number of years (in particular the NHS), Ayesha has developed a keen interest in representing employees and restoring the imbalance in employment relations. Clients can feel confident that they are in safe hands and that they will be brilliantly supported with as little stress and worry as possible. Ayesha’s detailed experience of representing both spectrums of workplace relations enables her to provide a measured, and balanced service, in the pursuit of justice.

Ayesha has a portfolio career and when not dedicated to her law practice clients, you may find her in her creative profession as an actress on stage and screen. Ayesha is passionate about exploring social and political issues especially in the area of discrimination. Ayesha is often engaged by illustrious venues, such as the National Theatre, to facilitate, present at, and chair events in her creative and professional capacity. She is former chair of a registered UK charity (the Act For Change Project), and a former Governor at Lambeth College.
