Mia Pantechis is an employment and industrial Senior Associate, practising in Maurice Blackburn’s Sydney office. She is listed by the prestigious Doyles Guide as a member of one of the top law firms for employee & trade union representation in NSW in 2017.

Mia graduated from the University of Sydney with degrees in law, economics and social science, with majors in industrial relations and human resource management. She worked for two years at a specialist employment law firm before joining Maurice Blackburn in 2014.

Mia is an ambitious and dedicated lawyer with experience providing advice to clients across a range of employment law issues including, employment contracts and policies; award interpretation; restructures and redundancies; performance management; terminations; discrimination and harassment; unfair dismissals; and adverse action matters.

Her advice to clients is strategic, practical and solution focused, and she is driven to fight by the challenge of achieving fair outcomes for employees who are faced with the power imbalance in the employment relationship.

“Employment is a unique area of law that is constantly evolving. It was this, together with my desire to fight for people who have been treated poorly by their employers that lead to my decision to practice in this area,” says Mia.
