Practice Areas

  • Data and Privacy
  • Employment

James is a Practice Group Leader in LegalVision’s Employment team. He advises across all areas of employment, including employment and independent contractor agreements, termination of employment (including redundancy and unlawful termination), employment disputes, investigations, modern awards, work health safety obligations and notifiable incidents. Prior to joining LegalVision, James spent almost 10 years working in private practice across employment and work health safety.

James has experience dealing with businesses of all shapes and sizes across a broad range of industries. He assists those businesses by providing commercially focused advice, which makes Australia’s rather complex industrial laws (almost) understandable.

James’ secondary expertise is in data and privacy, where he routinely advises businesses in relation to data handling practices. This includes the development of privacy policies and data protection policies, mandatory breach notification, direct marketing as well as the many obligations under the GDPR.

In his spare time, James is usually at the dog park teaching his Welsh Terrier to fetch (unsuccessfully).
