Our Employment & Labour lawyers have the legal expertise to provide creative and pragmatic solutions for a wide variety of employment-related issues that arise in today’s workplace. Our approach is to provide advice that will minimize the time, costs and disruption associated with labour and other employment disputes. We represent our clients before various provincial quasi-judicial tribunals and in court, and frequently attend at conciliation, mediation and other settlement proceedings.

We also provide support to management in workplace contracts and policies, collective bargaining, collective agreement administration and grievance arbitration.
