National firm bolsters employment and safety team

National firm bolsters employment and safety team

Cormack Dunn

Gadens has announced the appointment of a new partner, who has joined the firm’s employment and safety team in Sydney.

Cormack Dunn (pictured) joins Gadens from Herbert Smith Freehills, where he was special counsel for over six years.

Mr Dunn brings to his new role extensive experience advising major government and non-government organisations on complex employment and safety issues.

His expertise includes advising organisations on WHS legislation and compliance, workplace safety review and strategic advice, as well as incident management. He also has considerable experience in defending clients prosecuted under WHS legislation.

“Cormack is an exceptional safety specialist, recognised by clients for his practical and commercially minded advice,” said Gadens Sydney CEO Ian Dardis.

“His 12 years’ experience working in private practice and for government, across all aspects of employment and safety, further strengthens our client offering.”

This sentiment was echoed by Gadens national head of employment and safety Mark Sant.

“Cormack joins a growing employment and safety practice, and brings with him deep safety knowledge with a unique perspective, given his prior employment with a safety regulator,” Mr Sant said.

“It is not surprising that Cormack’s clients just love his work.”

Commenting on his new role, Mr Dunn said: “Gadens is well regarded in the market for employment and safety and I was attracted by the opportunity to work not only with an exceptional team of lawyers and an impressive list of clients, but also for a firm with an exciting future.”
