Pinsent Masons has established a work health and safety (WHS) team with a new partner jumping over from Sparke Helmore.

Carlie Holt will lead Pinsent Masons’ new practice alongside senior associate Georgina Dodd and associate Laura Slocombe. Holt has worked with clients in construction, manufacturing, healthcare, consumer goods, and government; moreover, she is an expert in WHS matters, coronial inquests, and inquiries.

“We are seeing a significant change in workplace and industrial relations laws in Australia, which means we need to work alongside our clients on complying with what is an increasingly complex regulatory environment”, Pinsent Masons Australia head Matthew Croagh said. He confirmed that Holt and her team would collaborate with the firm’s risk advisory services and employment and rewards teams.

Holt and her team officially commenced with Pinsent Masons on 18 February.
