Specific Areas of Law

Employment

Your employees are a valuable asset, but employment law is complex and getting it wrong can be costly. We can help.

Employment Mediation Services

Resolving issues early saves costs and lets you get back to productive work. Our experienced mediators help find win-win solutions to the thorniest workplace dilemmas.

Human Rights

Your employees likely know their rights – do you? Ask us how to proactively avoid claims under human rights legislation – forewarned is forearmed.

Labour

Unions and management are in a relationship – it’s like a marriage with no way to divorce. Expertise in managing that relationship is essential.

Occupational Health & Safety

Keeping employees safe is more than just buying equipment and the liability for employee injuries is significant. Talk to us about how we can help.

Workplace Investigations

External investigators offer objectivity, which is often invaluable in these situations.

Workplace Safety & Insurance

Workplace accidents are expensive in more ways than one. There are ways to mitigate those costs – ask us how.
