Angharad Aspinall (Capital Law)

Angharad Aspinall

Angharad is a Solicitor in our Employment and Immigration team. She has specialised in employment law for almost eleven years with an initial focus in employment tribunal litigation, before joining private practice in 2013.

Angharad advises a wide range of clients both businesses and individuals.

She has extensive experience in, and particularly enjoys employment litigation having secured significant wins over the course of her work including: a six-figure settlement for an employee against his former employer and defending a third sector client in a complex disability discrimination and constructive unfair dismissal claim.

Angharad has a special interest in discrimination and regularly provides training on all aspects of equal opportunities.

She also has experience of advising on business immigration of both tier 1 and tier visas.

Capital Law were recommended to me when I first sought legal advice, following the hospitalisation of my father. After meeting with Nia Cooper and Angharad Aspinall to discuss a potential claim against my father’s employer, I put my faith in them to help our family get justice for what happened to him. Working with Angharad and the wider Capital Law team was the right choice and together we got the outcome we sought. It was a long journey with a complexity of challenges, all of which Angharad skilfully helped us to navigate and overcome. The team worked endlessly and passionately, but it was their empathy towards my father’s mental health and disability that I truly thank them for. They take a human approach to providing advice, and their willingness to work flexibly and patiently, always welcoming and accommodating my inputs and ideas, allowed us to build a trusted relationship. I can never thank Angharad and Capital Law enough for their efforts in giving my father hope, justice, and a reason to keep living.
