Lisa Aitken

Managing Director

Employment Law is the only law we practice, AND we further specialise as we uniquely only represent and advise Employers. In fact, we are the only firm on the Sunshine Coast, and one of only a couple of firms on the Gold Coast, that specialise to this level.

Getting to know you and your business is important to us and enables us to provide practical and strategic solutions suitable for your workplace. We pride ourselves on the relationships we have with our clients and the true specialised services we provide to them.

We recognise that the majority of cases involving employment issues require an immediate, tailored response and we strive to provide this within your timeframe … at all times ensuring the highest quality advice and professional service. Plus, we are friendly to work with!

While we have offices on the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast where we invite clients to attend face-to-face meetings, we also work remotely with our clients across Queensland and interstate supporting and advising them in relation to their workplace challenges.

Since opening our office on the Sunshine Coast in 2006, the Gold Coast in 2011 and Melbourne in 2021, we have advised public sector employers at both Local and State Government level; and private organisations across most industries including, but certainly not limited to: building and construction; private schools; tertiary education; hospitality; manufacturing; wholesale, storage and distribution; professional services; healthcare; retail; banking and insurance; transport; technology; agricultural; and real estate.
