Weightmans welcomes HR expert to brand new role
Seema Champaneri is New Business Development Lead for the firm’s HR Rely service
National law firm Weightmans has welcomed Seema Champaneri to a newly created role of New Business Development Lead for its HR Rely team.
Seema is an accomplished HR professional with over two decades’ experience in employee relations and employment law. She has supported organisations across a variety of sectors through large scale restructures, mergers and acquisitions, as well as helping to create efficiencies within their day-to-day HR operations and compliance processes. Seema joins the firm from London Business School, where she was Associate Director. Her role is national in scope but she will be based in the firm’s London office.
HR Rely has provided first class, fixed fee employment law and HR advice to UK employers for almost 20 years. Operating as part of Weightmans, specialist regulated advisors support organisations with prompt, commercially-focused advice in alignment with their HR goals.
“Weightmans’ HR Rely offering is a real game changer for organisations seeking support on employment law and employee relations issues with guaranteed cost certainty. Having been a service user myself in two previous roles, I have first-hand experience of the HR Rely service and how we can work with clients to support them on a full-range of workplace issues, right through the complete employment life cycle.
“I truly believe in the product and the firm itself, and I am delighted to join Weightmans and help HR Rely and its team strive for bigger and better.”
Jawaid Rehman, employment Partner and head of HR Rely said:
“Seema is a real self-starter with a passion for the client experience and we have already learnt so much from having her on board. She brings a viewpoint and set of skills that will no doubt help us to take HR Rely to the next level and is a very welcome addition to the team.”
