Our team of specialist practitioners has extensive legal, human resources and senior management expertise in the corporate sector as well as the public sector and local government.

By working only with employers we aim to prevent the occurrence of workplace disputes. If sub-optimal workplace behaviour does occur, we can then deliver remedial interventions to resolve grievances expeditiously and fairly.
