We are savvy, strategic, innovative and client-centred. We offer the full array of dispute resolution services from negotiation and mediation to arbitration and litigation.
From a “work law” heritage, we have honed unique negotiation skills to creatively and thoughtfully assist people in resolving problems that range from complex high-level conflicts and intricate cases to every day business issues.
We have earned our reputation as active listeners, creative thinkers, problem-solvers and trusted advocates.
We are known for playing to our strengths and, as a result, are among a select group of boutique and specialty Canadian law firms profiled in Punching Above Weight, published in Lexpert April/May 2017.
Also, we are recognized as one of Canada’s top five employee-side Labour and Employment firms in Canadian Lawyer magazine, January 2018 and again in Canadian Lawyer InHouse magazine, May/June 2018 and January/February 2019.
Privately-held enterprises, community groups, professional associations, and organized labour trust us to help them manage and resolve issues related to people and processes.
We are a go-to firm for high-stakes risk management planning and, when necessary, take measured responses and appropriate action to manage disputes and protect interests.
We value diversity, and aim to create a safe, welcoming, inclusive, and culturally competent environment for our clients, lawyers, articled clerks, and staff. We are committed to social justice and anti-oppression in our workplace.
Because we recognize that anti-oppression and cultural competence require ongoing learning, we have and will continue to engage with local educators to build our competence and awareness.
