Renae Schloss

Renae is a Lawyer with our Employment & Workplace Law team.


My name is Renae Schloss and I practice in the Employment & Workplace Law team at Murdoch Lawyers.

After living and working in Edinburgh, Scotland for the past 2 years, I have relocated from Brisbane to Toowoomba to join the team at Murdoch Lawyers.

I was admitted as a Lawyer in 2012 and commenced my legal career in the Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution sector of a boutique Brisbane firm.  As the firm grew, I was fortunate to gain experience in various workplace matters and it was here that I found my niche.

A day in the office for me consists of working alongside Matt Bell and the Workplace team to provide advice on matters such as Employment Agreements, Unfair Dismissal and Workplace Health & Safety.

Outside of the office you will (almost always) find me enjoying a coffee with a book in hand.  Living abroad and having the opportunity to travel throughout Europe has instilled the travel bug and I am always looking for new places, in Australia or around the world, to explore.
