  • You will not be disappointed

    John has provided employee relations advice to the Cerebral Palsy League for over 8 years.  As you can imagine employing over 1600 staff brings its joys and challenges and John has been with us every step of the way making sure those challenges could be anticipated and mitigated wherever possible and aiding us to set up the frameworks to  maximise the joy of managing staff that are geographically spread and in very diverse professions.

    His recent involvement in helping us to create one Enterprise Agreement for all staff of the CPL was invaluable.   The ongoing support he has provided on individual industrial matters has been responsive, pragmatic and informed by years of experience in the field.  His expert knowledge and vast experience along with a great  sense of humour have made this aspect of my job enjoyable and highly productive.

  • Legal strategy to achieve the best business outcome

    I first met John and started taking his IR legal advice when he was practising in Melbourne over a decade ago. When he moved to Brisbane to head up a legal practice I followed him there.
    Its not just clear legal advice I need its also the legal strategy to achieve the best business outcome. And John is very good at this.

  • Very successful in-house education and training sessions

    John has been providing employment and industrial relations advice and guidance to me since 2002. I find his advice to be both accurate and practical for the situation, and he actively looks for solutions which meet both legal and operational requirements. One of the first actions I took at DMS was to contract John on a retainer basis to provide his services.  John has also led very successful in-house education and training sessions on industrial relations and employment law. His unique presentation style has been very successful in getting the message across to managers and supervisors at various levels in the organisation.
