The Melbourne Workplace Relations, Employment and Safety team enters a new phase of growth with arrival of partner Glen Bartlett from the Perth office and the appointment of several other team members, including the relocation of senior associate Anna Casellas from Perth and lateral hire of senior lawyer Rob French.
Head of National Workplace Relations, Employment and Safety, Joe Catanzariti, said "The expansion of our team in Melbourne with the arrival of Glen and Robert will add to our ability to respond to the needs of clients at a time when workplace relations issues are again coming to the fore."
Glen said he was pleased to be part of a united team that was in growth mode and looked forward to working with other Clayton Utz team members and clients across the country. Glen joins the highly regarded partner Dr Graham Smith and special counsel Luke Connolly as the new workplace reforms begin to take effect. Several other new team members have recently been appointed, adding further depth and expertise to the Melbourne and national workplace practice.
