Ms. de Silva has experience advising global brands and senior executives on employment issues. A significant part of Ms. de Silva’s work lies in supporting her international clients with their commercial needs.
Qualified as an attorney (solicitor) in England and in the United States, Ms. de Silva uses her understanding of cultural differences gained through decades of living and working in Europe to guide transatlantic businesses.
