Employment Litigation

The termination of employment can be a difficult and sensitive time for both an employer and an employee. We act for both employers and employees to assist them with terminations and other employment issues. While we often attempt to resolve employment disputes without litigation, where necessary, we are prepared and ready to represent our clients in employment actions to obtain a fair outcome.

While we represent employees and employers from all industries, we have particular expertise in the financial industry, and often assist executives when they negotiate their employment contracts or when their employment is terminated.

As well, we are regularly engaged in addressing “departing employee” situations, when an employee has allegedly taken confidential information with him or her when departing. We have deep experience seeking and obtaining injunctions on short notice to prevent the misuse of confidential information and unfair business practices by former employees and their new employers.
