She brings with her, MO said in a statement, “30 years’ workplace relations experience across a variety of roles in human resources and private practice, including many years at Corrs Chambers Westgarth and Herbert Smith Freehills”.

“Samantha’s principal areas of practice involve providing strategic advice on organisational change and restructuring, assisting clients with contentious and non-contentious enterprise bargaining and advising on all aspects of executive hiring and firing. She also advises and represents clients in response to adverse action, discrimination, unfair dismissal, sexual harassment, bullying and breach of contract claims and provides legal and commercial advice on employment-related issues arising from mergers and acquisitions, sales, receiverships and liquidations,” the firm said.

MO CEO John Nerurker said that the arrival of Ms Maddern marked the start of a “new phase of growth” for the firm’s workplace relations team:

“Under the leadership of partner Daniel White, the team has become one of the foremost practices of its kind in Perth. Now, the addition of another senior partner in Samantha provides the opportunity to reach new clients while leveraging the considerable synergies which Daniel already brings to our existing practice,” he said.

Ms Maddern added: “The Mills Oakley vision of growth through collaboration strongly appealed to me. I am excited to be joining the firm and to be working alongside Daniel White, who is well known and respected in many of my own client sectors.”

She starts in her new role on Monday, 5 October 2020.
