Rachel Webster, Lawyer





I can provide you with advice and representation on all employment related matters (whether you’re the employer or the employee), including:

  • Employment investigations

  • Personal grievances

  • Dispute resolution

  • Representation at mediation, the Employment Relations Authority and the Employment Court

  • Employment agreements and policies

Health & Safety

Have WorkSafe come knocking? An aggrieved employee threatening to make a complaint? Or do you just have queries about your obligations? I can help. I work with an experienced Health & Safety Manager where required.

Overflow Support

I support other law practices and in-house legal teams when they have too much work to handle in-house. Clients that utilise this service are surprised how cost effective and workable it is!



Almost everything commercial!

Being a sole in-house lawyer for many years I have come across many weird and wonderful commercial matters! Let’s chat about your commercial legal needs. To give you some idea though, my experience in this area includes:

  • Contracts

  • Procurement/supply

  • Civil disputes (including debt enforcement)

  • Intellectual property

  • Construction

  • Property

  • Independent contractor matters

  • Securities

  • Sharemilking disputes

  • Service tenancy disputes


Virtual In-house Legal Counsel

For organisations that need ongoing legal support, but are not ready to employ a full time in-house lawyer, I can act as your virtual in-house legal counsel! This relationship gives me the ability to work closely with your organisation to ensure it has the right legal advice at the right time.

This can also work as temporary cover while your sole in-house legal counsel takes leave. I do this for a number of organisations and it is cost effective and seamless for the organisation.
