At SBM Legal we have taken the next big step in our development as one of Australasia’s leading employment law specialists.
Co-founding partner Don Mackinnon is stepping away from day-to-day involvement in the firm, to practise as a Barrister. The move reflects Don’s changing priorities, including a higher level of commitment to sports governance and a desire to focus more on project work such as investigations and bargaining. The firm will continue to retain a strong association with Don.
Further, SBM Legal has appointed two new partners of the firm, Matthew McGoldrick and Anthony Russell.
Matthew has worked at SBM Legal since 2013, including working closely with Don for many years as Senior Associate. Anthony joined SBM Legal in May of 2018 as a Principal.
The move marks a new phase of growth for SBM Legal with the appointment of Matthew and Anthony, and at SBM Legal we are excited about this new phase for the firm.
Everything at SBM Legal will carry on business as usual, with a continued commitment to providing clients with the best possible service. All of the highly experienced lawyers at SBM Legal are here to help with any employment law needs, and we look forward to working with you in 2020.
And finally, how is it really almost Christmas and holiday time? Where has the year gone?! It has been a pleasure assisting our clients during 2019 during what has been a very busy time indeed.
We know 2020 will bring many more developments in employment law – the remainder of our newsletter brings you up to speed on a number of those changes – as well as an election where yet again the shape of employment law policy will be a key battleground.
We wish you all a happy festive season and a safe and restful holiday time with family and friends.
