We are not constrained by the traditional law firm model. We believe there are more collaborative and effective ways to work with our clients.


Employment Law

Examples of the services we provide include:

Employment Law and Industrial Relations Advice and Support

We provide legal advice and support on all employment law and industrial relations matters. Our advice is practical, diligently researched and based on our extensive experience. We can advise you on a broad range of matters including compliance with modern awards, the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth), industrial relations strategy, business restructures, employee disciplinary and performance management issues, termination of employment and all employment compliance issues.

Employment Law Compliance

We can review your organisation’s compliance with employment and industrial relations laws and relevant modern awards and provide a confidential and privileged compliance report.

Employment Contracts and HR policies

We can provide or revise your organisation’s employment contracts, HR policies, independent contractor agreements and other relevant documents. An organisation’s employment contracts and HR policies should be tailored to the individual business and industry. A “one-size-fits-all” approach is rarely appropriate. When prepared properly in light of your particular business issues and risks, your documents – being the foundation of the employer-employee relationship – can be an effective and powerful tool, minimising risk and uncertainty.

Enterprise Bargaining

We can assist you with the negotiation of enterprise agreements and other regulated agreements as your negotiator-nominated bargaining agent or with “behind-the-scenes” negotiation support. We can also assist clients with the development and approval of such agreements.

In-House Support

We provide short-term or project-based in-house human resources and legal counsel services. Employers often need additional in-house support, particularly during busy periods or in relation to specific projects such as an organisational restructure or the sale or purchase of a business with associated employment and transfer of business issues.  In many situations, it will not be practical to employ an expert on an ongoing basis. We work with our clients at the client’s workplace as temporary in-house advisor to implement timely and effective solutions, until the issue or project is satisfactorily completed.

International Clients

We advise international companies and their subsidiaries on Australian employment law and industrial relations issues. Through our international networks, we have relationships with employment law firms in numerous jurisdictions including various Asian and Asia-Pacific countries, the USA, the UK and several mainland-European countries.

Legal Representation

We represent clients in all employment and industrial relations litigious matters across Australia including matters in the Australian Human Rights Commission, all State discrimination commissions and tribunals, the Fair Work Commission, the Federal Circuit Court, the Federal Court and State Supreme Courts.

Workplace Investigations

We work with independent investigators to provide workplace investigation services. It is important that the purpose and the terms of reference of the investigation are determined before the investigation begins. We work with our clients to understand the risks and guide and scaffold the investigation process.

Workplace Training

We deliver training on various workplace matters including anti-discrimination, bullying and sexual harassment. We also provide compliance training following audit or investigation by the Fair Work Ombudsman or other regulators.
