Mills Oakley expands employment practice in Canberrra with key hire

Mills Oakley has expanded its office in Canberra with the hire of employment partner Will Ward.

In a statement, the firm said that Ward is one of only four NSW Law Society-accredited specialists in employment law in Canberra and has over 20 years of experience in the area.

He advises both private and public sector clients on a range of workplace matters, including employment law, workplace relations, work health and safety, industrial relations, enterprise agreements, executive contracts, and discrimination law.

Additionally, Ward has experience in matters involving issues or claims brought under the Fair Work Act, state or federal discrimination legislation, and work health and safety (WH&S) laws.

John Nerurker, chief executive officer of Mills Oakley, said that Ward would “add a new dimension to the firm’s Canberra employment practice.”

“Our Canberra employment practice is currently oriented around government clients,” said Nerurker. “Will’s deep experience in advising private sector clients will complement the existing offering. We are fortunate to welcome him to the team.”

For his part, Ward said that the Mills Oakley national employment team has “risen in prominence and reputation in recent years” and is looking forward to “drive the team’s continued success in Canberra.”
