Employment Law


We provide a full range of employment law services for our clients, from helping them manage workplace change and avoiding constructive dismissal issues, to the structuring of employment contracts and representation during post-employment litigation, including wrongful dismissal proceedings.

In a dispute, our general approach is to seek the resolution that is in the best interest of our client, avoiding lengthy, costly, and uncertain hearings wherever possible. Where this is not possible, we thoroughly prepare to represent our clients right through to trial and appeal.

We represent clients in a wide range of industries, including health and long-term care, municipal, construction, architecture, engineering and design, manufacturing, retail, food and hospitality, banking, professional services, insurance, pharmaceuticals, transportation, telecommunications, and automotive.

We provide strategic advice and assistance to our clients on such diverse human resources matters as:

  • Purchase and sale of businesses
  • Workforce restructuring, integration and harmonization
  • Employment policies and procedures
  • Workplace investigations
  • Recruitment and retention practices and procedures
  • Drug testing
  • Criminal background checks
  • Conflict resolution
  • Restrictive covenants

As required, we work closely with the lawyers in our other practice groups throughout the firm to ensure that all of our clients’ legal needs receive prompt, seamless attention.
