She also has broad experience in conducting workplace reviews in compliance with relevant laws, with a particular focus on the prevention of bullying and other forms of discrimination and harassment.

Maddock partner Catherine Dunlop said that Finn is an “outstanding addition” to the firm’s employment, safety and people team.
