Tim Grellman

Solicitor

Tim Grellman is a lawyer in Hall Payne’s employment and industrial relations team. He works in our Sydney office.

After graduating from Macquarie University, Tim worked as an Associate to Vice President Catanzariti AM of the Fair Work Commission. Working on some of Australia’s largest industrial disputes at the Fair Work Commission triggered a passion for employment law and industrial relations.

Before joining Hall Payne, Tim practiced employment and industrial relations law at a law firm in Sydney for three years.

Practicing employment law has exposed me to the inherent power imbalance that exists in industrial relations in Australia. I am committed to doing my bit to address this imbalance.

I’m passionate about advocating for the rights of working Australians, striving for social justice and achieving a fair and successful outcome for my clients.

Tim is a member of the New South Wales Law Society and the Workplace and Safety Law Committee of the New South Wales Young Lawyers. He volunteers for and raises money for the Public Education Foundation of Australia by competing in charity runs.

Outside work, Tim continues to captain Macquarie University’s 5th grade Sydney Shires cricket team. He also enjoys supporting the South Sydney Rabbitohs, going to the beach and travelling.

I had the best experience, was represented by an incredible Solicitor, Baiba Thomas. Baiba and her team worked extremely hard to ensure I would get the justice deserved.

I wish to thank immensely Baiba, Alexandra, Esra and top Knotch Barrister Mr J Trainer.

I highly recommend Hall Payne Lawyers.

I had the pleasure of working with Craig Joshua to help me with my fairly complicated workers compensation matter, and I do not think I could have found better support during this difficult time for me. Craig not only put together a watertight case, but he was always there when I had a question and took me patiently through the whole process from start to finish. On top of that, he went above and beyond by giving me advice how my claim would affect other proceedings and vice versa, which I am grateful for. The icing on the cake was of course the big win at the end!
