It is crucial that your employees are not only well looked after, but fit with the focus and direction of your business.
We transcend the typical employment law issues, to ensure your business is poised (through your people) to streamline inputs and maximise commercial outputs. We do this by focusing more on governance and senior management assistance.
Coupled with that, we also advise and support clients going through performance, disciplinary or redundancy processes. While our focus is on ensuring that a client is best placed not to face a grievance or dispute, when things do become more of a challenge we will represent you at mediations, the Employment Relations Authority or the Employment Court as required.
We also undertake a number of independent investigations for workplaces where employees have made allegations of sexual misconduct, bullying/harassment, theft, assault or other serious allegations which require the expertise of an independent investigator.
Our team can provide you with all your required policies, procedures and employment contracts and support and advise you on health and safety matters, including WorkSafe investigations.
Our strength is understanding your business from the inside out, so that we are best placed to provide you with commercial and pragmatic advice and put you in the best position to avoid commercial disputes.
Having good long term relationships with our clients allows us to work with clients before problems exist, however, in the event that you and/or your business finds yourself facing a commercial or civil dispute we are also incredibly experienced in all forms of dispute resolution, including commercial multi-party mediations, arbitrations and court litigation at all levels.
Dispute resolution is always a challenging time for those involved, so we focus on taking the stress off you so you can continue to focus on your business and your day-to-day life, and we will deal with all aspects of the dispute on your behalf. Our expertise covers commercial and contractual disputes, trust and trustee disputes, personal and commercial insolvency.
Our focus in this area is to assist you in protecting your assets and your interests in property, both when entering into a new relationship and in the event that your relationship breaks down.
We have significant expertise in advising on complex trust and company structures within families and relationships and can provide you with advice on all complex relationship property areas.
In the event that your relationship breakdown ends up in court, we are equally adept at acting for you in contentious dispute resolution and litigation and working with you for the best possible outcomes.
Our team can also tailor contracting out (“pre-nup”) agreements and separation agreements for you.
