Brenton is an expert lawyer in workplace relations and is passionate about helping employers resolve workplace disputes and other employment related issues.

To date, Brenton has enjoyed the following successful judgements in his career:

Why Moores?

"Moores was an attractive option for me because I wanted my success to be determined by the value and results I achieved for my clients, not for the number of hours on my timesheet at the end of each day."
