As National Group Practice Leader of Industrial Law at Slater and Gordon, I advise unions and their members on a range of industrial disputes, including the conduct of industrial litigation in various courts and tribunals.
I joined Slater and Gordon in 2001 because I wanted to be part of a national firm that’s built on an ethos of looking after unions and protecting the rights of workers and their families.
I’m a great believer in commonsense and logic, and I always aim to achieve the best results in the quickest and most economical way for my clients. I give direct, honest advice and bring almost 40 years of legal experience to the task of protecting the rights of unions and workers.
Major industrial cases I’ve been involved with include:
- The constitutional challenge to the Workplace Relations Act (Work Choices case)
- Representing a number of unions before the trade union Royal Commission
- The Hunter Valley coal mine dispute.
