“No country can ever truly flourish if it stifles the potential of its women and deprives itself of the contribution of half its citizens”. Michelle Obama

Joanne Kavanagh joined Mancini Legal in May 2020 as a consultant. She brings with her over 20 years of experience advising employers and employees on the full range of employment law. Joanne has also served as a partner and head of employment at a regional law firm.

Prior to qualifying as a solicitor, she worked for over 10 years as an HR manager in the private and public sectors. This has given her insight into workplace issues and the importance of quickly establishing the facts of the matter, so as to give pragmatic and straightforward advice.

She also understands the importance of transparent fees and discusses client funding options at the outset. She delivers estimates for the work discussed and provides regular updates as the matter proceeds.


Joanne is a member of the Law Society and the Employment Lawyers Association and is recognised as a leading regional employment law specialist in Chambers Legal Directory.


Joanne enjoys hiking in remote areas such as Patagonia, eating exotic food like Szechuan hot pot and is looking forward to her next theatre trip.
