A proud Novocastrian with a passion for helping business, Shona d’Arbon provides specialist legal insights in the construction, manufacturing and mining industries. For 10 years she served as industrial relations officer in the Master Builders Association, providing advice, assistance and representation to employers in the building and construction industry. She is highly skilled in enterprise agreement drafting and interpretation, policy review and contract review.
A key reason why Shona loves working with Ai Group Workplace Lawyers is that it provides her the ability to specialise in employment law. ‘We are a dedicated workplace relations firm for employers,’ she states, ‘dealing heavily with particular jurisdictions and backed by a policy team that not only keeps us informed about how laws are changing, but who can influence changes in policy.’ Shona empathises with business and is an expert in helping clients understand and navigate tricky areas of compliance. ‘Even the best employers in the world can get caught out.’ She encourages employers to be proactive in seeking advice and to future-proof their organisation.
