I am a Solicitor specialising in employment law, providing advice and assistance to both employers and employees. I am known for my friendly and personable manner. Whilst I generally prefer to adopt a non-contentious approach, I am experienced in situations where more rigorous negotiation is required.
I have wide ranging experience and understand both commercial and public sector environments and needs. I qualified in 2007 at Norwich firm Hansells but shortly moved into local government with Norfolk County Council, where I could develop my experience. Having also worked in the legal department of then FTSE 250 subsidiary company Fendercare Ltd, I moved back into private practice with Hatch Brenner in January 2015.
I was fortunate to be involved in some high profile cases at Norfolk County Council. I am proud to have assisted clients in securing generous settlements and cost effective resolutions, as appropriate.
I completed my law degree at Nottingham Trent University including a year in industry working with an in-house legal team. I completed my LPC at the College of Law. I am also a member of the Employment Lawyers Association.
‘Carla's work was excellent and with her advice I was able to achieve a better outcome than expected. She was extremely professional at all times, but also honest and fair when it came to billing. Whilst remaining professional, she also has a very friendly and approachable manner which, when you are facing a very stressful situation, is very much appreciated. I would never hesitate to consult Carla again should I need to.’
‘Carla was very professional. She was very sympathetic about the situation. Her work was first class and dealt with all queries and following things through in a fast time. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Carla or Hatch Brenner.’
‘Hatch Brenner, and Carla Gowing in particular, provided a very professional service and ultimately achieved the right outcome in the case.’
‘The service I received to resolve a sensitive employment related issue was exemplary. My case was managed with efficiency and the excellent communication lead to an impressive result.’
