Commercially practical solutions. On-call advice. Strategies that fit into the long-term vision of your business.

Managing your team can be a challenging part of business. Workplace relations covers more than the seemingly straight-forward affairs of employee recruitment, engagement, and termination. A raft of conditions and matters arise both during and after the employment relationship. Prevention and problem-solving go hand-in-hand.  Pre-emptive strategies can streamline your HR systems while responsive advice smooths over any trouble spots.

From your immediate need to resolve a dispute, to your long-term desire to provide a safe and harmonious workplace, our expert team of workplace relations lawyers deliver high-level strategic advice to guarantee your business can continue to concentrate on its core purpose.

We provide practical, cost-effective counsel to businesses, big and small, on all aspects of employment law. We keep you informed about changes in the law and educate you about your responsibilities as an employer.

We can help you minimise risk by ensuring robust systems and programs are in place to safeguard your business.  We also advise on how complementary training programs can be utilised to keep both management and staff alike abreast of HR best- practices employee rights and obligations, and changes to the law.

Carefully drafted employment contracts and well-executed policies make a solid platform for safeguarding your business and employees, while developing a more efficient business model and enjoyable workplace environment for all.

Katherine was a great support during a difficult period in my life with a work related matter. Her professionalism, sound advice, honesty and authenticity was clear during our first meeting. From there we developed a trusting and open relationship which helped to guide me through some challenging conversations with my employer. She was always accessible and available to provide advice and regularly checked in on my wellbeing. Her empathy and genuine caring approach was reassuring and really helped me to remain calm and balanced through a stressful time for my family. I am so grateful for Katherine’s support which helped me move forward with my life and the next exciting chapter in my career. I would highly recommend Katherine for anyone needing legal advice and wanting an honest, genuine and caring lawyer on your team!
