Rachel Kamm

Principal Consultant

I am a Principal Consultant in our Resolution team, specialising in investigations. I see the key issues quickly and my experience helps me to create a proportionate and fair investigation plan. During the investigation process, I am pleasant and professional with interviewees whilst asking the necessary questions. I ensure that the client is kept up-to-date about any developments that could affect the scope of the investigation. My reports are well-structured and plainly written, with clear and reasoned outcomes and (where requested) practical recommendations. I am recognised as being a safe pair of hands, particularly for any sensitive or urgent matter.

I came to resolution work with a background in law, public policy and education. I started out more than 20 years ago as a policy advisor in Central Government. Studying law in the evenings, I qualified as a barrister and in 2007 started practising from 11KBW chambers (specialising in employment and public law), gaining a reputation for being easy to deal with, practical and not overly aggressive.

After 10 years as a barrister, in 2017 I moved away from a purely legal role, gaining more variety and balance in my life (including teaching law at university). My role in the Resolution team is one important part of this. I value this opportunity to focus on practical issues in the workplace and strongly believe that a thoughtful investigation can be a positive step in avoiding litigation and rebuilding relationships.
