Discrimination Law

Our Practice

Anti-discrimination law in Queensland is dynamic and evolving. The legal process pursuant to the Anti-Discrimination Act 1991 (and other legislation) may appear daunting at first glance as most parties to complaints and legal proceedings in this legal area have, usually, not had any prior exposure to the process or knowledge of what to expect.

The correct legal advice, on both prospects of success and quantum of damages, is essential.  Our dispute resolution team has extensive experience in advising and representing parties in this legal area.

Our Expertise

We have continually achieved positive results for parties in proceedings involving:

  • sexual discrimination and sexual harassment
  • racial discrimination
  • discrimination on the ground of disability
