Contemporary Employment Lawyers, SYDNEY

Employment law is changing. Gone are the days of dusty textbooks and abstract legal principles that solve a single legal issue but leave you wondering where to go next. Employers and employees want more for their money.

Employers

Employers like you want a firm of employment lawyers who can provide advice that fits into the strategic direction and goals of your business. You want on call advisors who are integrated into the management and governance of your organisation. You don’t want expensive and isolated advisors who lack commercial awareness. You want cost-effective and commercially realistic advice about employment law issues such as workplace investigations, long term employee absences, redundancies and the protection of your intellectual property and confidential information that fits into the bigger picture. You want conversations about your business and its human resources needs, not lengthy letters that aren’t connected with how you run your business on a day to day basis. Get in touch now to have a discussion about how our employment law and human resources services can fit into the short and long term growth of your business.

In-House Counsel

In-house counsel like you want to build relationships with human resources lawyers who can provide strategic advice that helps to increase your company’s bottom line. You want lawyers who can get to know the needs, goals and culture of your company and to adopt its mindset at a moment’s notice. You adopt a disaggregated approach to instructing external lawyers by seeking specialist advisors who can provide cost-effective services in key areas. You want a competitive employment law firm that stands out from the crowd. Get in touch now to have a discussion about how our workplace lawyers can add value to your company.

Employees

Employees like you want targeted advice that helps to further your career trajectory and goals. You don’t just want to be told what the law is. You want to know how it can help you to get where you want to go. You want sensitive advice that helps you to preserve the relationships with people in your industry and with your employer that you have worked to build. You want to know how your approach to solving a particular issue, such as an underpayment, redundancy, deed of release, long term absence or unfair dismissal, fits into the bigger picture. If you’ve just received a promotion or switched jobs and need an expert human resources lawyer to look over your new employment contract, or if you’re experiencing difficulties in the workplace and need some strategic guidance, we’re here to help. We want what’s best for your career.

What our clients are saying

I was made redundant by my employer, who was in financial difficulties. I had some outstanding entitlements that hadn’t been paid. I called Chris and Louise, who both helped me through the process of asserting my legal rights against my employer. Chris and Louise negotiated a deed of release that got me most of my money, without burning any bridges. They were great advisors and I would recommend their services to anyone in my position.

JESSICA
EXECUTIVE EMPLOYEE, PUBLIC RELATIONS INDUSTRY

What our clients are saying

Thanks to John and Chris, we were able to take one of our former employees to court to stop him from taking our confidential information and using it against us by giving it to an international competitor. Chris and our barrister were great advocates who helped us win the case without taking a financial hit. They were even able to manage the elements of the process that took place overseas. Next time my company faces a similar issue, I’ll be getting back in touch with John and Chris to put a stop to it.

TONY
CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER, MINERALS AND RESOURCES COMPANY

What our clients are saying

We had to restructure our business because our funding revenues changed. The employees were angry and I felt like I was in over my head, so I came to the office to see John and Louise. They provided me with a comprehensive strategy that broke the process down into bite sized pieces. The strategy worked really well. It’s good to get advice from lawyers like Louise who have a real specialisation in the not for profit sector. I liked that they came out to our care home to meet the employees and the board, and gave me a role to play in the process.

CASSIE
HUMAN RESOURCES MANAGER, NOT FOR PROFIT ORGANISATION

What our clients are saying

I sought John’s advice about a disruptive board member. He hardly turned up to any board meetings. When he did, he ruined them one way or another. John helped to outline the practical and legal steps that the board and I could take to resolve the situation. He was very knowledgeable. He and Dominic also wrote a board code of conduct and amended our Constitution, and we haven’t had problems since.

LINDA
CHAIRPERSON, COMPANY TITLE BUILDING

What our clients are saying

John and Dominic helped me to set up a new business. I’d been working for an employer I didn’t get on with for years, and wanted a fresh start. John advised me on how to avoid breaching my contract, and on all the essentials of setting up with my business partner. We’ve recently decided to start employing our first workers, so I’ve gotten back in contact with Dominic and he’s drafted some employment contracts and policies. It’s great to know that the team at JFMLAW are here at all stages of my business’ development.

DOM
CIVIL ENGINEER, START UP COMPANY

What our clients are saying

I am an in-house lawyer who only works a few days every week. I have a good grasp of the consumer complaints and contractual issues that come across my desk on a day to day basis, but I do not have a background in employment law. I always pick up the phone to John, Chris or Louise when an issue pops up with an employee. The fact that they know me and the company I work for is a great benefit. They provide quick and cheap advice that has proved invaluable in the smooth running of the workplace.
