Corporate Services International has made a splash in the world of international corporate law by agreeing to settle a lawsuit brought by a former Australian corporate law employee.
The company is expected to file an official claim with the Australian Federal Court (AFC) in the next few weeks.
The former employee alleged that corporate services company Corporate Services Australia had engaged in unfair business practices, including a lack of respect for the rights of women and LGBTI persons.
Mr Dutton said he welcomed the resolution and hoped the company would soon be able to move forward with its business activities.
“We are extremely pleased to have reached a resolution in this matter,” Mr Ducey said.
“Corporate Services International is now able to resume its operations and will be able continue to offer its high-quality services to our clients.”
It is also a strong signal that Australia remains committed to a culture of equality and diversity, with the same commitment to women and people of colour in our workplace and in our community.
“The company has also been hit by the recent death of one of its founders, who was found dead on June 29.

As a result of these actions, the Commission has concluded that Corporate Services will not be subject to the Australian Competition & Consumer Act, and has concluded no investigation is required to determine whether the conduct alleged by the complainant in this case is a violation of the Act,” the spokesperson said.

The deal means Corporate Services, which provides corporate and corporate services across a range of industries, is likely to be able hire and train its own lawyers.
Mr Kallenbach said it was important that Corporate Lawyers were not left out of the process.
“If they don’t want to be involved, they have to be very aware of what their role is and who they’re working for,” he told news.com:au.
“That means they have a lot of choices when they’re going into the workplace.”
That’s why it’s really important that they have the confidence in the legal profession to know that they’re not going to be sidelined or they’re actually going to get their work done and that’s important.
