Alison Loveday, Kennedys

Judging Apprentice and Graduate

Alison is a Partner in the Manchester office. She is a nationally recognised expert in financial disputes and all aspects of employment law.

Alison trained as a solicitor at berg law firm, qualifying in 1992, and became Chief Executive in 2016.
Alison has two main areas of focus – people and business. Her early experience as a commercial litigator drew her into the world of board and shareholder disputes, which naturally evolved into the creation of berg’s employment team. She specialises in tackling people issues involving the varying concerns of shareholders, investors, directors and employees.

Alison’s work ranges from advising on the incentive arrangements for senior executives, to the negotiation of severance packages, conduct of employment tribunal claims and High Court injunctions to enforce restrictive covenants.

She is a keen supporter of the North West business community and a former Chair (and current Director) of business development organisation pro-manchester. She is also the Chair of the Science & Technology Sector Group, and joint Chair of the Skills Committee. Alison contributes to the education and skills debate in the North West – regularly engaging with apprenticeship and development schemes, such as iDEA, a scheme designed to develop digital and entrepreneurial skills for young people.
