Angus Mackenzie joined Maurice Blackburn's employment and industrial law section in 2018. With extensive experience acting for employees and senior executives across all aspects of employment and industrial law, Angus's achievements include:

  • Acting for a CEO in obtaining a six-figure settlement in an employment dispute.
  • Acting for a senior executive in obtaining a favourable settlement of an employment dispute involving entitlements in an employee share scheme.
  • Strategic advice concerning restraint of trade and transfer of business issues.
  • Acting for a trade union in a highly-contested dispute involving interpretation of an enterprise agreement.

Skilled in oral and written advocacy, Angus is passionate about his area of law and works to ensure clients have their rights vindicated. His experience representing employers in a previous role affords him a unique, strategic viewpoint when representing employees.

"Industrial and employment law is one of the most distinctive and complex areas of law in Australia. It has shaped Australia’s constitutional history. It’s also people-focused. Nearly every dispute in employment law begins or ends with a face-to-face discussion between real people," says Angus. 

Outside of Maurice Blackburn Angus is on the committee of Road to Refuge, an organisation focused on changing the conversation around people seeking asylum in Australia. He has also been a volunteer with Job Watch Employment Rights Community Legal Centre.

He holds a Bachelor of Arts in philosophy and a Juris Doctor from the University of Melbourne.
