Australian Business Lawyers & Advisors (ABLA) has again been recognised as the leading workplace law team in the country, having taken out the award for Workplace Relations and Employment Team of the Year at the 2018 Australian Law Awards.
This follows ABLA’s recent win of Employment Law Specialist Firm of the Year at the Australasian Law Awards earlier this year.
Associate Director and Head of the Workplace team at ABLA, Kyle Scott said the recognition was a whole team effort.
“It’s an honour to once again be recognised by our peers as leaders in our field,” Kyle said.
“Every member of our team has a genuine passion for what we do, and this passion comes through in the high-quality service we provide for clients.”
ABLA was also a finalist in the Commercial Team of the Year category and local Associate Director, Suzie Leask was a finalist as Regional/Suburban Lawyer of the Year in the Australian Law Awards.
ABLA was amongst high performing law firms from across Australia who were award recipients at the black-tie event in Sydney.
ABLA specialises in workplace, property, and corporate and commercial law with offices in Sydney, Newcastle and Brisbane. As a part of the Business Chamber network, ABLA has a strong sense of purpose to help businesses in the region grow and maximise their potential.

The Newcastle team is bolstered by Dr Rod Harrison, a well-known Novocastrian and former Deputy President of both the Industrial Relations Commission of NSW and the Fair Work Commission, who joined the team in 2017 as a Principal Associate.
