Casey Sutton is an Associate Lawyer in the Corporate Advisory Team at Moores
Casey specialises in advising clients on all things workplace relations, including award and enterprise agreement interpretation and compliance, executive contracts, independent contractor arrangements, disciplinary and termination matters, post-employment restraints, performance issues and management, and managing ill workers.
Casey has been involved with a number of key projects including:
- Managing unfair dismissal, general protections and wage underpayment claims in the Fair Work Commission, the Federal Circuit Court of Australia and the Federal Court of Australia.
- Advising on legislative changes and case law developments, and the effect of those on clients.
- Delivering training sessions on various employment and industrial law related topics.
- Legal drafting projects, including plain language drafting.
Casey aims to understand a client’s “whole picture” – their needs, concerns, how they operate/their business model, industry, priorities and aims for the future.
Before becoming a lawyer Casey held various positions in human resources, most recently a Senior HR Consultant. She is able to draw on her HR experience and her experience working inside organisations as an in-house legal counsel to deliver practical and commercial solutions/advice to clients. Her experience in HR allows her to better relate to clients concerns, priorities and challenges and she enjoys drawing on this experience and knowledge to assist clients to resolve legal issues in a practical way.
"Moores has a strong sense of identity and purpose, and this shows in how it services its clients. Getting to know a client, rather than simply providing legal advice, aligns with my approach to working with clients."
Outside of work Casey can be found attempting to learn French, playing tennis, taking a dance class or at the beach. She loves tropical island/beach holidays and has a strong chocolate and coffee addiction.
