I'm a co-founding partner at the labour and employment law boutique Watershed LLP. Prior to that, I was an equity partner at Canada's largest national law firm practicing for the past 17 years as a management-side labour and employment lawyer.
I am an Adjunct Professor at the University of Toronto where, for the past nine years, I have taught labour and employment law at Woodsworth College.
I am the co-author of two books published by Carswell (Understanding Ontario’s Employment Standards Act, 2000 (Carswell, 2002) and An Employer’s Guide to the Acquisition and Termination of Bargaining Rights in Ontario (Carswell, 2001)).
I also write and speak on a wide-range of labour and employment topics at conferences and seminars organized by, for example, the Human Resources Professional Association of Ontario (HRPAO), Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC), the Quebec Bar Association, The Canadian Institute, Infonex, Insight and Federated Press, among others.
I have been interviewed on a variety of labour and employment law issues in magazines and newspapers such as McLean’s, National Post, Toronto Star, Vancouver Province, Computing Canada, Canadian Lawyer, the Lawyers Weekly and the National Magazine (the official publication of the Canadian Bar Association) and have appeared on radio and television.
My wife, Annie, and I have two sons and live in the Toronto area.
