Sam has taken on various cases centred on discrimination issues and has proven to be a highly persuasive advocate in the presentation of complex cases.
Her in-depth knowledge and eye for detail are matched by her ability to be quick on her feet in cross-examination.
She rightly prides herself on giving pragmatic advice, especially when weighing-up the potential costs involved in litigating a matter.
The needs of clients are her primary focus.
Sam consistently receives excellent feedback, building her client base through regular referrals from those she has advised throughout her successful career.
Sam plays an active part in the management of the firm and is its Equality and Diversity Partner.
Outside work she enjoys sea swimming (even better in winter!) and cycling, taking full advantage of the Sussex countryside whenever she can.
"Sam Dickinson always give us clear, professional and timely advice and I would highly recommend to anyone."

"I asked Mayo Wynne Baxter to review and validate a Voluntary Severance agreement with my employer. This was done very efficiently and very speedily, while also taking care to alert me to the implications of certain clauses in clear, non-expert language. The process was incredibly smooth - and the cost was exactly within the indicated amount, which was reassuring. I'm highly likely to use the same company again if I need legal advice in the future."
