SELECTED EXPERIENCE BANK

  • Negotiating the terms of a restraint clause so that our client was able to go out on their own in the industry without the threat of litigation from their former employer.
  • Conducted cross-jurisdictional negotiations with multiple employers regarding the termination of a high-level executive – ultimately achieving a substantial settlement sum.
  • Advising an employee on how best to combat internal bullying behaviour from superiors.
