Mid-tier firm expands into workplace relations areas

Mid-tier firm expands into workplace relations areas

A mid-tier firm with offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide is expanding its portfolio into the workplace relations area.

A mid-tier firm with offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide is expanding its portfolio into the workplace relations area.

Thomson Playford Cutlers has announced it has made a lateral hire in an three-person Adelaide-based team.

The new team is headed by partner Karl Luke, who boasts more than 15 years experience as both a barrister and solicitor dealing with workplace relations.

The firm's chief executive partner, Adrian Tembel, said the appointment would further strengthen the firm’s expertise and resources in its growing workplace relations practice.

“This is an important step forward for the firm and broadens the level of expertise and support for our clients.

“This appointment highlights a real growth market for the firm, with demand for workplace relations assistance increasing following the introduction of the Fair Work Act.

“Employers have had to grapple with significant legislative changes in workplace relations over the last two years, and the addition of [Luke] and his team allows us to bolster our already strong Workplace Relations team.”

“During his career, [Luke] has provided strategic advice for national and local employers on industrial relations, safety and employment law issues. He will be a great asset to the firm and our clients.”

“We are pleased to secure this team” Tembel added.

Thomson Playford Cutlers is one of the country’s fastest growing law firms. It has more than 340 partners, lawyers and support staff across its three offices.
