Scarlet Reid (pictured) has joined Ashurst, bringing with her more than 25 years of experience in workplace health and safety (WHS) and employment law and a practice that focuses on investigations, incident management, and assisting clients in responding to safety regulators.

She has come over from McCullough Robertson, at which she established that firm’s Sydney employment and safety practice and was a partner for five and a half years. She was also a partner at Henry Davis York.


Speaking about the appointment, Ashurst Australian regional head and WHS head Lea Constantine said: “We are delighted to welcome Scarlet to Ashurst.

“Scarlet’s expertise in work health and safety will complement our existing practice and enhance our offering to clients at a time of increased regulatory activity. With her long history in this field, Scarlet will bring additional expertise and insights to our clients.

“From a personal perspective, I am very much looking forward to working with Scarlet and further growing our WHS practice both in Australia and abroad.”

Ms Reid added: “Ashurst’s employment team is known for its work in some of the country’s most important industrial relations, employment and WHS matters.

“I am excited to join the firm’s highly respected employment team and am very much looking forward to working with Lea and her team of accomplished lawyers to grow the offering to clients.”
