Our approach

Workplace issues can be stressful for employees and employers to deal with. We act for both employers and employees.

Our approach to resolving employment issues is built around the following core values:


Stressful situations at work often require creative solutions. Whether employees or employers our experience as specialist employment lawyers enables us to provide clients with insightful advice, enabling them to resolve difficult workplace issues.


We pride ourselves on keeping up to date on the very latest determinations issued by the Employment Relations Authority and judgements of the Employment Court. Our legal advice is therefore well reasoned, informed by our specialist knowledge and understanding of legislation and case law.


Integrity means follow through. We do what we said we will do. We work on an agreed fee basis, there are no hidden costs, and no surprise invoices. Timely advice is important for our clients. We make sure that we follow through. Our practice is built on trust and integrity.


We love the practice of law and we are also passionate about making an impact in our local community, national community and beyond. To contribute and make an impact we redistribute the profit generated from our practice into Watermark Charitable Efforts – and in turn, we support a wide range of humanitarian causes aimed at reducing poverty, homelessness, human trafficking, and projects which promote equality and the quality of human life.
