Iain is a workplace compliance lawyer who acts on behalf of Employers. In his practice he defends clients from prosecution with regard to regulatory offences, class actions concerning working conditions, and in other employment-related matters brought before courts and administrative tribunals.

Iain frequently acts for Employers with regard to high jeopardy legal matters including catastrophic incident response & mitigation, complex internal & external investigations, and in defending against unwarranted allegations of systemic breach of duty or human rights violations. Iain is known for his dedication, responsiveness and diligence when responding to workplace incidents or defending against Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) charges. As lead counsel, Iain has successfully prevented charges from being laid against diligent clients in relation to numerous workplace fatalities and catastrophic injuries. In cases where charges have been laid, Iain has worked tirelessly to obtain charge withdrawals, acquittals and optimal resolutions on behalf of his clients.
