Alexandra (Alix) is a Solicitor at Danny King Legal, who is a strategic, empathetic, and dedicated lawyer. She is commercial and forward reaching in her approach.
She has a Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Bachelor of Laws (LLB) from Deakin University and was admitted in 2001. Alix has also undertaken further studies in Human Resource Management at the University of Technology, Sydney, to diversify her skills.
Alix has had a varied career. She has worked as a Team Administrator for Goldman Sachs International in London, in the Commercial Litigation Department of Middletons, Moore & Bevin (as it was known at the time) in Melbourne, before moving to Sydney and working as a Solicitor in the Dispute Resolution Group of Cornwall Stodart. In 2003, Alix joined the Workplace Relations and Safety Group at Lander & Rogers, where she remained until 2007. At that time, Alix took a a career break to focus on raising her young family and assist in her local community. Alix returned to practice in 2020, joining Danny King Legal. Her life experience, maturity, convivial nature, and passion for employment law has been recognised by her nomination as a ‘Rising Star’ for the Women Lawyers Achievement Awards.
Alix is commercial and realistic in her approach to the law, which her clients and colleagues highly value. She thinks through both the short term and long-term impacts on clients in each matter.
At Danny King Legal, Alix is involved in a broad spectrum of work, including in employment contracts and other workplace agreements, and Unfair Dismissal and General Protections claims. She provides quality advice to both employers and employees regarding their rights and obligations under relevant awards, agreements, and legislation. Alix is also experienced in managing the employment relationship, including termination of employment, restraint of trade issues, discrimination and bullying complaints, and finding appropriate strategies for each situation.
Workplace health and safety (WHS) is an area of interest for Alix, and she has broad experience in advising employers with respect to obligations and breaches under WHS legislation and investigating workplace incidents. Alix has conducted training seminars for employers and their employees in relation to WHS legislative developments and implementation of appropriate workplace policies and behaviours. She feels rewarded by assisting employers to improve the culture and dynamics within a workplace to facilitate retention of the most suitable employees, whilst not losing sight of the commerciality of such processes. Alix also values helping employees move on graciously from workplaces where there is a misalignment in culture, values, and practices, to more suitable situations.
Alix is kept on her toes outside of the office by her three children and dog, and enjoys staying active at the gym or with a game of tennis. She loves debriefing the highs and lows of life with her friends.
