Amber Sharp (pictured) has joined Bartier Perry as one of the firm’s newest executive lawyers – a position equivalent to that of partner.
Ms Sharp left Marque Lawyers for the new role, where she spent more than eight years in the firm's workplace relations group. She also worked for Henry Davis York from 2002 to 2008.
With more than 15 years’ experience in the practice area, Ms Sharp has acted for a range of employer clients. She has worked on matters including termination and general protection disputes, discrimination and workplace investigations.
Speaking of her move, Ms Sharp noted the reputation of Bartier Perry’s workplace relations group. She said she found the unique matters the firm attracts, particularly from government clients, especially interesting.
“The workplace team at Bartier Perry has a great reputation: excellent clients, interesting matters and a growing footprint in NSW government work.
“I'm really excited to be joining the team and, in particular, helping to grow this part of the practice,” Ms Sharp said.
According to the Bartier Perry, Ms Sharp is a “pre-eminent” workplace relations practitioner, who is expected to “bring further depth to the team’s existing considerable expertise”.
Workplace relations head James Mattson welcomed the new partner to the firm.
“Amber has an outstanding reputation as a trusted adviser coupled with a knowledge and passion for employment law that is unrivalled. Clients, and we at Bartier Perry, will be enriched by her presence,” Mr Mattson said.
Bartier Perry’s Deanna Oberdan has also recently been promoted to the position of executive lawyer in the firm’s workplace relations group.
