Senior Solicitor – Bachelor of Law and Commerce (MQ)
Bringing over 5 years’ experience spanning multiple areas of law, including litigation and dispute resolution in all NSW Courts, we look forward to having Peter’s contributions and expertise here at Stevens & Associates Lawyers.
Peter completed a Bachelor of Law and Commerce at Macquarie University and has been admitted as a solicitor in the Supreme Court of NSW.
Upon being admitted, Peter has largely focused on employment law, specialising in the interpretation and application of modern Awards, and the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth). Peter prides himself on providing expert and practical advice to employers and proactively preventing legal problems from arising.
Prior to joining our firm, Peter gained extensive experience working at an employer association advising corporations of all sizes throughout the civil construction industry on all aspects of employment law. In this role, Peter was a fierce defendant of employer rights and provided support in person, over the phone, and in writing. Peter also travelled across New South Wales giving presentations and his expert advice on many and various topics of employment law. One of his specialties was personally assisting employers with understanding how the Modern Awards apply to their business, and what they can do to ensure compliance and best practice. A topic of particular importance to employers with the increasing prosecution of wage underpayment matters targeted by the Fair Work Ombudsman.
As a senior solicitor for the firm, Peter plays a critical role in the provision of legal services for employees, employers, and independent contractors. Peter has a particular interest in unfair dismissal matters, Award compliance, and supporting employees and employers alike in discrimination matters.
Outside of work, Peter enjoys playing basketball and can be found playing on courts around Sydney.
