As an associate in the employment team, I advise clients on both contentious and non-contentious matters.
I really enjoy providing guidance and practical solutions to clients in relation to their workplace issues.
Communication is a fundamental part of the employer/employee relationship. This is also true of a lawyer/client relationship. I therefore take the time to listen to what a client wants to achieve and work with them to reach their desired outcome.
I have been described as “unflappable”, “thorough” and enjoyable to work with because of my ‘can do’ attitude.
