Rema Hamdan

Legal Counsel (Employment and Safety)

Rema is an employment, industrial relations and safety lawyer with broad expertise across all aspects of employment law. Rema has a growth mindset which enables her to deliver innovative solutions to assist her clients in reaching their strategic goals.

“I have a natural inclination to stand up for rights and an interest in bringing value-based and strategic leadership to employment and safety.

From an early age, I was interested in how organisations attract, grow and change labour, safety and systems, having migrant parents working multiple roles to build their own Australian dream. I have spent the past 5 years working across the spectrum of employment and safety, where I have been privileged to support clients to respond to, develop and enhance employment and safety systems, issues and disputes.

I thrive working in environments with strong organisational vision and leadership. I am proud to have assisted leading organisations build their safety systems and culture from the top down.”
