Harmers Workplace Lawyers has been awarded the Lawyers Weekly 2017 Australian Law Awards “Workplace Relations and Employment Team of the Year”.
This award recognises the achievement of excellence and leadership in practice for workplace relations and employment teams. The category is open to all law firms in Australia, both employment practices within multidisciplinary firms and specialist workplace relations law firms. Chairman, Michael Harmer, said the award is a testament to the Firm’s cohesive team approach, the high calibre and commitment of Harmers’ outstanding lawyers and support staff, and the L&E Global alliance, which enables Harmers to participate in cross-border employment law work.
“Harmers is thrilled with this recognition from Lawyers Weekly, the judges and the Australian business community. We extend our sincere gratitude to our clients who enable us to undertake the worthwhile work we do. We have seen significant growth in our corporate advisory practice over the past 12 months, with both complex workplace relations litigation and WHS matters. The firm has also continued to act in many of Australia’s most high profile workplace relations cases” said Mr Harmer.
Harmers was also a finalist in the “Dispute Resolution” and “Boutique Law firm of the Year” categories; and Senior Associate, Amy Zhang, was an individual finalist in the “Senior Associate of the Year” category.
The 17th Annual Lawyers Weekly Australian Law Awards was held at The Star on Friday 1 September 2017 and attended by 700 legal industry professionals.
