Brigid Clark (pictured) has joined MK, bringing her “a deep understanding of WHS law, conducting workplace investigations, as well as advising on termination of employment, discrimination, bullying and harassment issues”.

“Brigid’s ability to mould to her environment and understand the motivations behind her clients’ needs is just one of the reasons she has been sought out to join Macpherson Kelley,” the firm said in a statement.


Ms Clark will be based in the firm’s Sydney office.

She joins from BigLaw firm Maddocks, where she served as a senior associate and then special counsel. Prior to this, she worked at Herbert Smith Freehills and WorkCover NSW.

The news follows the firm’s naming of a new chief people office in mid-August, its promotion of 13 lawyers to more senior roles and hiring of a special counsel in early July, and its addition of a principal and special counsel in mid-April.

Speaking about the appointment, MK national managing partner Grant Guenther said: “Brigid is renowned as an energetic and dedicated lawyer who is actively engaged in keeping her clients at the forefront of legal changes and developments in employment and WHS law, so we were keen to get her on board to join our employment practice in Sydney.”

“Businesses are dealing with a whole new realm of employment and safety issues, with public expectations at an all-time high.

“Brigid’s experience navigating both the mitigation and litigation side of work, health and safety makes her a great asset to clients and the firm.”
