Maddison & Associates

The Modern Workplace

The modern workplace is ever changing. So too are the laws that govern our workplaces.

The principals of Maddison & Associates have lived the changes in workplaces and workplace law from all angles. They are experienced legal practitioners. They’ve also experienced the modern workplace as executives of large and complex organisations. So they not only understand the complex rights and obligations prescribed by legislation, courts and tribunals but also how to strategically provide the optimum outcome for their clients.

John’s executive HR and legal expertise and experience with ASX 200 firms and Maurice’s senior union experience provides a unique combination of expertise. This is the critical difference Maddison & Associates provides to its clients.

While the core of our practice is and will remain industrial and employment law Maddison & Associates can offer clients representation and advice in relation to:


  • Family Law
  • Criminal Law
  • Human Rights
  • Health & Safety
  • Contract
  • Tort law
