We help with workplace behaviour concerns.

We find the path through workplace disputes, whether before or after they crystallise. Our expert team can mediate fragile or broken relationships, investigate concerns and complaints or make decisions on your behalf around allegations of wrongdoing.

We are comfortable with difficult issues, always treating people with kindness and respect.

Whilst people issues can be addressed internally in most cases, it’s not always possible. Conflicts of interest can prevent an internal solution, or the scale of the issue requires an external dedicated resource. Our highly specialised team have extensive experience covering the private, public, charitable and union sectors. We can help with interventions best suited to your needs.


We are emotionally intelligent, understanding workplace problems are often emotional ones.

We undertake our work in an open, fair and independent way, bringing diverse experience across employment law, HR and employee relations.

Our collective experience has taught us that it is possible to achieve effective solutions with minimum disruption, whilst maintaining confidence of those directly affected and the broader employee population.

My experience with byrne·dean was excellent. They were professional, directed, cost conscious, and performed the tasks they were given with sensitivity and objectivity. Obviously, the nature of our engagement with Byrne Dean is, and must remain, confidential; however, I can say that they handled a challenging assignment in a timely fashion, within budget and produced a work product that exceeded our expectations.
