Luke has been recognised in The Best Lawyers in Australia 2024 for work in Labour and Employment Law and Occupational Health and Safety Law and was named ‘Lawyer of the Year’ by Best Lawyers in 2019 and 2021 and recognised in Best Lawyers in 2023. He has also been recognised in the Doyle’s Guide 2023 as a leading Employment Lawyer (Employer Representation) and as the preeminent Work Health and Safety Lawyer, for South Australia.

Luke advises CEOs, senior WHS and HR professionals across all sectors on WHS, employment and industrial relations issues, and is known for his practical and balanced approach.  His experience gained through working in private practice, government and in-house gives him a broad perspective on the workplace issues that impact employers.  

Luke has acted in numerous serious WHS incidents, including fatalities, and works closely with clients to ensure a coordinated incident response while minimising the likelihood of adverse findings. He often acts as counsel – and given his knowledge of his clients and their operations this can provide a significant advantage in managing concurrent legal and other risks.
