Australia: Middletons' employment practice recognised as the best in the country
Last Updated: 27 May 2012

Middletons has been awarded Employment Firm of the Year at the 2012 ALB Australasian Law Awards. Middletons was one of six firms shortlisted for the award announced last night at a black tie event at the Sydney Town Hall. Commenting on the success, Middletons' national managing partner Nick Nichola said, "It is a great honour for Middletons to be recognised by this award as it reflects the outstanding quality of our team and the work they do for our clients."

"The current employment market in Australia is a very tough one. We are seeing substantial volumes of industrial action. Add to this a tight labour market and skills shortages in many sectors and you can see why clients are seeking the highest quality advice to strategically and effectively manage their workforce."

Middletons' employment group is one of the largest in the market, having grown significantly in recent years in response to increased client demand. The group acts for many of Australia's leading companies on all employment, occupational health and safety and industrial relations matters.

Alice DeBoos, Middletons Workplace Relations & Safety practice group leader said, "This award is a testament to the quality work that our team produces and the quality of our clients. The current environment has created an increase in workplace relations matters and our team has met that challenge and grown as a result."

"We are dedicated to continuing to partner with our clients to help ensure they achieve the best outcome for their business, in particular a quick resolution to disputes if and when they arise, within the confines of the current system," concluded Ms DeBoos.

The ALB Australasian Law Awards is well and truly established as one of the most important events on the legal industry calendar. The awards recognise the excellence and outstanding achievements of leading law firms and in-house legal teams as well as the top deals and dealmakers of the year. A high calibre panel of judges examine all nominations to determine winners in each category.
