Beverley Bates

Advice Services Director

I qualified as a legal executive in 2002 and then a solicitor in 2004. I then spent several years practising personal injury before undertaking a masters in employment law and transferring to employment practice. I joined Markel Law in 2007 as an employment solicitor working my way up to the director initially managing the advice line part of the business, then from August 2016 becoming director in charge of all non-contentious legal business.


Through my role within FSB and meeting hundreds of businesses the employment law knowledge I have built through Bev has been exceptionally useful.

Bev explains HR law in simple and easy to understand terms. Her presentation skills are engaging and have helped me for many years helping businesses and passing on knowledge to new FSB advisors.

It's always a pleasure to be in Bev's company in both a formal and social environment.
