Sam qualified in 2001 and joined Mayo Wynne Baxter as an Associate Solicitor in 2015 and was promoted to Partner in 2017.
She is head of the Dispute Resolution department.
She expertly advises both employers and employees on all aspects of employment, whether as a robust litigator or by concentrating on the finer points of contract drafting.
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.
"My firm has worked with the employment practise at MWB, and in particular Sam Dickinson, for many years. The advice & service is faultless and they have never let me down. Highly recommended!"

"I would like to convey my thanks and appreciation to everyone involved, for the efforts that went into securing the positive outcome at the tribunal this week.
I have to highlight Sam Dickinson’s hard work on this, as she had to work exceptionally hard due to the way that this claim had been presented. I certainly felt in safe hands, and well supported by all."
