A dedicated national team. Tackling complex issues with common sense.

Employment conflicts and safety issues can rapidly consume leadership time and resources, undermine productivity and negatively impact morale. Employers need a safe pair of legal hands working with them to resolve workplace issues as quickly and seamlessly as possible. Our employment and safety experts advise executives, managers, government decision-makers and their organisations on thorny matters, providing common sense solutions that address the heart of the problem and deliver workable solutions.

Clients value our broad range of experience, which spans multiple industries, and includes work with federal, state and local government and leading corporates. They trust our guidance about the likely outcomes of a case or issue—and act accordingly.

We partner with our clients for the long-term, taking the time to understand their workplace environments, industry issues and business strategies. As a result, we deliver legal services in line with their business and commercial objectives.

Clients seek our advice to support their risk management strategies, helping them to preserve and enhance personal and corporate reputations, and ensure they maintain productive, flexible and safe workplaces.

We work with our Commercial Insurance and Statutory Lines teams to ensure our client’s interests are protected across the broad range of legislative issues that arise from employee issues involving workers' rights, safety and employment. We ensure those issues are comprehensively addressed in a seamless way that minimises risk from all perspectives.

Because we understand that “urgent” means urgent—particularly when incidents occur—our team is always available to help in a crisis, regardless of the time of day.

Clients also appreciate our stringent quality controls and our cost-conscious focus on providing value for money.
