Laing O’Rourke


Corrs and Laing O’Rourke have successfully acted to overturn a WA Supreme Court decision that could have greatly widened employer safety responsibilities to include third party facilities – such as motels – hired for use by employees.

Laing O’Rourke faced charges when Cyclone George caused fatalities at a Pilbara mining camp in 2007. After the company‘s original acquittal was overturned on appeal, Corrs was engaged and Laing O’Rourke was successful in the Court of Appeal.
