Our employment team
Our experienced team is focused on our clients and their businesses and is dedicated to providing expert employment and health and safety law advice with a strategic and commercial approach. Our knowledge and understanding of employment related legislation and the thinking and policy behind it is second to none. We have advised successive governments on law reform and chaired and assisted government-led tripartite groups on employment issues.
We take pride in our reputation as pragmatic and solution focused legal advisers. Our approach is based on helping clients achieve what they want, based on a clear understanding of their risks and shared decision-making. We have a significant presence across the country, with a breadth and depth of capability that ensures we can handle large, novel and complex jobs. We are accessible and respond quickly.
If a matter needs to be settled, we drive that process and often settle matters without the need for mediation. In litigation we are similarly outcome focused. If circumstances change we move quickly to adapt the strategy as needed. We hold firm to our ethical obligation to be fearless on behalf of our clients, without taking positions that have no merit, and that waste time, money and energy
Our employment team has four partners supported by six other senior lawyers and an experienced team which is focused on the full range of employment issues.
