Rumana is a lawyer in the employment department at Cubism Law. She advises on all aspects of contentious and non-contentious employment law including: policy, contracts (drafting and negotiating), flexible working and a wide variety of terminations and discrimination cases.

Her clients include both employees and employers ranging from corporates and business owners to start-ups and SMEs. Rumana has brought and defended cases of unfair dismissal, breach of contract and discrimination claims providing advice at all levels.

 

With a background in immigration, industrial disease and employment law, over the last 16 years Rumana has developed a wealth of experience to guide and support her clients through what can be a challenging time. She tackles her work with a solution focused approach and offers clear practical advice peppered with a positive attitude.

Outside work she is just as goal orientated. Each year sets herself the task of completing one ‘sporting’ event be it a half marathon, an obstacle course through mud or stand up paddle boarding. When she is not undertaking sizeable sporting challenges she sings with a local choir whilst dreaming about travelling around a little more of the world with her family.
