Tina is the head of the Reading and Mayfair offices. She predominantly advises corporates on HR/employment law issues and regularly provides bespoke training sessions for clients on a wide range of legal issues affecting the workplace.



“Simply put, she is excellent. Tina is practical, arrives at the right decision and provides honest feedback. Every time I have the business interact with her on a call, they always come away saying, ‘wow, is she good."
(Client)

“Tina is a phenomenal lawyer with an abundance of commerciality, I feel like she and her team are a natural extension of my team. She is an excellent negotiator as well as excellent in educating and training staff, managers and HR professionals alike. I have the utmost confidence that she has the credibility and can provide the confidence required to know we are in safe hands.” 
(Client)

“Tina Wisener is fantastic. She is hugely competent, professional and a true business partner to my organisation. She understands our business and our appetite for risk.” 
(Client)

“She brings so much more to the table because she has a very big depth of experience. She became a lawyer, having been in the military in HR at a very senior level. So she has the pragmatism of somebody who’s actually had to do the job. She brings the experience, she gets the situation straight away.” 
(Client)

“She is an amazing lawyer: knowledgeable, commercial and always available. You can roll her out to chairman level with no concerns.” 
(Client)

“I would pick her out. She has had the willingness to pick up litigation work that others won’t do, like criminal work that comes out of employment work. Others wouldn’t do that, and others wouldn’t have that breadth and expertise.”
