About Alice

Alice is highly regarded and passionate about employment and industrial relations and this is reflected in the work she undertakes and the outcomes she achieves for her clients. She has worked in the area for nearly 25 years and is a recognised leader in the field.

Alice works with her clients in both the public and private sectors to devise and implement strategic plans in relation to employees, human resources and industrial relations. She is renowned for thinking outside the square to achieve clients’ organisational objectives, and for her practical and commercial approach to the resolution of issues – which often involves complex and difficult litigation. With deep expertise, Alice provides strategic advice in relation to employment structures and industrial relations planning and management, including union relations and collective bargaining.

Alice regularly represents clients in tribunals and superior courts in employment, industrial relations and restraint of trade/restrictive covenant cases and is a very experienced litigator. She is also an experienced trainer, regularly creating and delivering programs and sessions for clients that are designed to give them the knowledge and tools to comply with their obligations.
