About us

At EI Legal, we live and breathe employment law. All of our lawyers are specialist employment lawyers – we’re not generalists who dabble in this area. We therefore guarantee you’ll always be taken care of by experts in this field.

We are at the forefront of the new law movement and all our lawyers are able to access flexible working practices. We don’t wear suits unless there is a genuine need to, we bring our pets to work and we embrace technology.

We work closely with Employment Innovations – Australia’s leading employment and HR consultancy business. Through this partnership we are able to offer clients bespoke services outside those traditionally provided by employment lawyers. For example, where we consider that clients really need the assistance of a HR professional (rather than a lawyer), Employment Innovations is generally able to provide such services at a lower rate than what a lawyer would charge to do the same work.

Employment Innovations is also able to assist with any business migration needs (visas, etc) as well as providing payroll and HR technology solutions.

We are always interested to hear from exceptional lawyers who want to challenge the status quo and find better ways of delivering services to our clients. If you want to hear more about how we work, over a game of pinball at our in-house bar, please get in contact.
