Regardless of what business you’re in, employment law is something that requires a great deal of expertise. What’s more, it’s something that many people running a business just haven’t got the time or know-how to handle themselves.

For the legal intricacies of industrial relations, workplace relations, and work health and safety, you need someone who specialises in employment law, renowned for their craft, trusted and sought-after by companies large and small. Someone like Ben Duggan.

As head of our Employment Law team, Ben is a trusted advisor to employers looking for practical solutions to complex workplace issues and disputes; be it advice on enterprise bargaining agreements; good faith bargaining obligations; strategic planning; responses to collective workplace and right of entry disputes; compliance obligations; employment strategies; employment policies and procedures, to name but a few.

The complexities of running a business with multiple employees means you’ll have numerous legal issues that need clear, informed thinking — sometimes before they even arise. Having Ben as part of your team gives you peace of mind knowing you have access to solid, professional advice regarding any policies, practices, incidents and disputes.
