Who We Are

About Us

FCB Group is Australia’s leading workplace legal and human resources (HR) solutions business.

We specialise in providing Australian businesses with the highest quality employment law advice.

In addition, our team of HR consultants specialises in devising smart ways to ensure that our clients manage their people as efficiently as possible and reduce the chances of workplace problems arising.

Most importantly, our lawyers and/or consultants work in partnership with our clients to maximise the contribution their people are making to the business.

Why choose FCB Group?

Many law firms claim they are different from other firms. However, when the rhetoric is stripped away, they are remarkably similar.

But at FCB Group we can back up our claim to stand apart from other firms. This is because we are not a conventional law firm. First, we only practise in the area of employment law. Second, unlike a conventional law firm, we use a holistic and multidisciplinary approach to examine workplace relations issues.

What does this mean?

FCB Group is made up of five core businesses that fit together like a jigsaw:

Our team of employment lawyers and workplace relations consultants provide a suite of solutions spanning legal services, HR consulting, contracting and management, as well as technology solutions. Our multidisciplinary approach means we examine workplace relations issues from every angle, so that we come up with the most effective legal and/or management solutions for businesses.
