Protect partner with Howard Kennedy over trainee solicitor secondment scheme

Protect are proud to partner with law firm Howard Kennedy to further the careers of two trainee solicitors who will be supporting whistleblowers.

Senior Protect Adviser and trainee solicitor, Hari Raithatha, joins the employment team at Howard Kennedy for three months to complete his training, whilst Protect welcomes Diarra Brown, a second-year Howard Kennedy trainee solicitor for a three-month secondment.

“We are delighted that our trainee solicitor, Diarra Brown, is carrying out a secondment with Protect. Whistleblowing is one of the most dynamic areas of employment law and Protect is at the cutting edge in developing best practice in this area, so it’s a great opportunity for Diarra to gain exposure to their work.

“We are also very pleased to welcome Hari Raithatha, a trainee solicitor at Protect, to carry out a secondment with our Employment team, gaining experience of the full range of employment law practice” said a spokesperson for the Howard Kennedy  employment team.

Diarra will be providing independent and confidential advice on the Protect advice line as well as supporting Protect’s Business Support team delivering training to clients and assisting with policy work including including helping to facilitate discussion with industry sectors.

Protect Legal Officer, Liz Gardiner said, “Diarra has already fitted in with the Protect team very well, and proving herself to be an invaluable team member. We hope she enjoys her time with us and learns a lot around whistleblowing best practice.”
