Expert in employment law and resolving disputes practically & cost effectively.


Associate lawyer at Dyhrberg Drayton Employment Law.

I have a background in general litigation and disputes resolution which gives me a sound knowledge-base to draw from.   My style is to provide real world advice to help clients meet their goals, and to avoid issues from escalating.  I am cost conscience and practical.

I have acted for people from all walks of life including employees (from junior to very senior), small, medium and large businesses, multi-national companies, embassies,  boards, schools, not for profit organisations, and government organisations.

I am an experienced negotiator and advocate (whether at mediation, in a tribunal or in court).

I have a wealth of experience dealing with all sorts of issues that arise at work:

  • Raising and responding to personal grievances;
  • Long term illness, medical incapacity and return to work plans;
  • Performance management;
  • Disciplinary processes;
  • Conducting investigations;
  • Restructuring and redundancies;
  • Health & safety /WorkSafe issues;
  • Minimum entitlements (minimum wage, holidays, parental and other leave) including Labour Inspector matters;
  • Bullying, harassment and discrimination (including Human Rights breaches and sensitive claims);
  • Privacy issues;
  • Future workplace arrangements;
  • Culture reviews and internal education;
  • Drafting/reviewing agreements, policies, correspondence and other documents; and
  • Covid-19 related employment law.
