Perth firm hires IR specialist

Perth firm hires IR specialist

Mike Baldwin

A Western Australian commercial law firm has appointed a new special counsel to lead its industrial relations practice.

Mike Baldwin (pictured) has joined Kott Gunning Lawyers as a special counsel, bringing with him over 20 years’ experience in workplace law and industrial relations. He now leads the firm’s employment and workplace safety practice.

Mr Baldwin was previously the director of Hazon Advisory, a boutique employment law firm also based in Perth. He also spent several years as an in-house counsel, first at the Master Builders Association of the ACT and then at engineering and construction company Kentz.

Kott Gunning said in a statement that Mr Baldwin is sought after for his experience advising clients in the construction, mining, oil and gas, manufacturing, education and retail industries.

“Mike’s extensive experience in the strategic ER/IR corporate advisory environment will enable us to enhance and add value to our existing relationships with clients and partners and to help new clients in the construction, manufacturing and resource industries,” said Kott Gunning chairman Vidal Hockless.

Mr Baldwin said he was pleased to join an established firm with a strong commitment to building its workplace relations offering.

“Having spent the last few years in a boutique environment, I am looking forward to being able to offer clients the benefits of a full-service firm without losing the intimacy of a specialised practice,” Mr Baldwin added.
