Sam qualified in 2001 and joined Mayo Wynne Baxter as an Associate Solicitor in 2015 and was promoted to Partner in 2017.
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.
"I really appreciate all your advice and support, I couldn’t have done any of this without you, thank you so much. I will definitely recommend your services to anyone I know if they are unfortunate enough to deal with this, you made this incredibly stressful situation more manageable."

"I thoroughly recommend Sam Dickinson and cannot speak too highly of her. She has been extremely helpful and responsive regarding my Settlement Agreement. She was very quick to spot aspects of the agreement that required addressing by the employer. Sam was friendly as well as highly professional and I am very grateful to her."
Great service from Samantha Dickinson. Simon - August 2020
