Jacob is an employment lawyer with experience acting for employees and employers in general protections applications, unfair dismissals, and other employment disputes. He also has experience providing assistance to employers in the enterprise bargaining process, with drafting employment contracts, and with workplace investigations. Jacob enjoys working in employment law because it primarily involves disputes surrounding workplace relationships which have a human element not always found in other areas of law. Jacob also enjoys developing workplace policies and procedures that reduce risk and thus provides clients with proactive solutions to avoiding future legal problems.

Jacob graduated from the University of Sydney in 2016 with degrees in law and science, with a major in mathematics. Jacob also has a keen interest in evidence and constitutional law.
