McDonald has represented employers across a range of industries, and also acted as Senior Advisor to Joe Hockey - the then Commonwealth Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations.
Managing Principal of McCabe Curwood, Andrew Lacey, said McDonald's addition continues to establish the firm's expertise across employment law.
"Employment law is a continually evolving practice area. We are seeing a lot of change, particularly this year with COVID-19 vaccinations and arising debates over employer and employee rights," says Lacey.
"McDonald brings an array of formidable experience to McCabe Curwood, strengthening our employment group, and continuing our drive for excellent client-focused results. We are thrilled to have him on board."
