Paul has worked with many outstanding practitioners since starting as a lawyer in 1989 at Minter Ellison, then moving to Andersen Legal, Clayton Utz and DibbsBarker. He is grateful for their leadership and the opportunities they provided him to collaborate.
He founded Paul Almond Employment Law in 2014 with the principal aim of giving to clients the greatest available direct access to senior level specialised experience. Fortuitously, his passion for employment law gained a great boost, too. He loves practising employment law.
Prior to starting out as a lawyer, he was Industrial Relations Officer for the Bread Manufacturers of NSW, working in industrial relations and member services on behalf of members.
He studied Commerce/Industrial Relations/Law at UNSW. He was lectured by some of the great industrial relations academics of the time, including John Niland, Ed Davis and Braham Dabscheck. Also during that time, he became the first student member of the board of Industrial Relations Society of NSW, later becoming one of its legal representatives.
Paul is part of the High 1981 Cohort and is proud to be associated with High.
He is highly committed to personal fitness. You might see him one day swimming, riding or running in the City environs in preparation for the next Triathlon.
