Seamus likes being a workplace lawyer, which is fortunate given that he’s been one since 1996. Since that time, he’s worked on all aspects of the employment relationship, for employer clients. He’s passionate about the power of communication and always adopts a pragmatic, reasonable and value driven approach.

What he does

The work Seamus does is split into two main parts. The first is focused on maximising the benefits of high functioning relationships, both employment and contracting. This includes drafting and interpreting all manner of contracts, industrial instrument, policies and the like, training and helping clients deal positively with the day to day questions arising from these relationships. The second is focused on assisting clients when those relationships sour and involves all forms of legal action in a wide range of Courts, Commissions and Tribunals.

Who he works with

Seamus has particular expertise in the disability services, transport, health, air services, government and retail sectors.
