Kitchener, ON - Ontario N2H4B7
519 498 2756
|Degrees/Designations -||B.A.; LL.B.|
|Practice Areas -||Business/Commercial, Employment, Human Rights and Labour|
|Practice Description -||I offer mediation of employment and commercial disputes, and assist organizations or privately held corporations address issues such as succession or internal disputes. Mediation in such circumstances offers a private and confidential alternative to litigation in the public arena.|
|Background -||In the fields of labour and employment, my experience has been atypical for an Ontario lawyer. I acted for many years almost exclusively for unions and employees, and subsequently almost exclusively for employers, in union and non-union shops. This experience on â€œboth sidesâ€, forms my understanding of the needs and goals of parties to employment and labour disputes.
Having practiced in Toronto for over a decade, I relocated in the 1990â€™s to Waterloo Region, from which I served clients throughout Southwestern Ontario and the GTA.
In practice I was recognized in labour and employment law by Lexpert and Best Lawyers in Canada. I have represented parties through arbitration, trials and appeals including several cases heard by the Supreme Court of Canada, but in most cases I represented parties in settlement. That is what I seek to do in offering my services as a mediator: help parties and their lawyers find an acceptable road to settlement if one exists.
