Employment lawyers for Australian executives and expatriates

Executive Rights Employment Lawyers was established in 2001 by Bruce Planck, solicitor, to meet the particular needs of Australian executives with respect to their employment law issues. This includes those executives in the expatriate community. Since that time, a large number of executives in Australia and in international locations have benefited from the experience and dedication of the Executive Rights legal team.

Acting for executives across all industry sectors

Executive Rights Employment Lawyers acts for executives across all industry sectors including:

  • senior public servants (Federal/State/local)
  • senior academics
  • insurance and banking executives
  • in-house counsel
  • human resources managers

Prior to establishing Executive Rights Employment Lawyers, Bruce Planck practised as a solicitor in Melbourne mainly in the area of commercial and contractual disputes. Since 1997, he has practised almost exclusively in the field of employment law, acting principally for executives at middle to senior management level.

We have helped a large number of executives to ensure their rights are protected with respect to termination of employment, confidentiality, restraint of trade covenants and remuneration clauses. This list is not exhaustive.

The trend in modern employment law is to re-emphasise the contract as being the source of rights for the executive. The need for an executive to receive legal advice on contractual issues has therefore never been greater. It is this need that Executive Rights Employment Lawyers seeks to meet.
