Assisting Employers


People management can be some of the most challenging tasks employers face. For complex matters, often there is insufficient skill in house to manage workplace legal issues, workplace investigations, workplace reviews or to resolve disputes.

We provide employers with workplace legal advice, representation in Courts and Tribunals, investigation and dispute mediation services.

We are highly skilled in helping employers solve workplace problems in an effective way that everyone can live with. For us, it is not about winning at all costs (although winning is part of the strategy), it is about creating sustainable and positive solutions for the future of the individuals and the organisation.

Nonetheless, if you find yourself the subject of an unfair dismissal claim, adverse action/general protections dispute, unlawful dismissal proceeding, anti-discrimination complaint or other employment-related litigation, we are here to advise and represent you.


Supporting Employees


Not all employers do the right thing by their employees. We represent employees who are subject to a workplace investigation or show cause process, have been disciplined or dismissed, or have challenges with receiving their correct pay and condition entitlements, have suffered discrimination or bullying, or are dealing with workplace or other injuries.

Because we represent both employers and employees in workplace matters, our breadth of experience gives us the unique ability to see issues from both perspectives, which provides us with stronger negotiating power and a more strategic viewpoint.
