My clients span the education, manufacturing, media and entertainment, and financial and professional services industries. I partner with them to deliver short- and long-term employment and industrial strategies.

In addition to advising on day-to-day matters, I have particular expertise handling sensitive and strategic executive-level employment law concerns, including regulatory issues and post employment restraints. I regularly conduct litigation on unfair dismissal, adverse action, discrimination and breach-of-contract claims. I also advise MinterEllison’s corporate team on the implications of mergers, acquisitions, sales, outsourcing and restructuring.
