David is a Partner in our Toronto office. He maintains a diverse practice spanning all workplace law issues in both federal and provincial jurisdictions. Employers in numerous industries – from school boards to airlines, and construction materials’ suppliers to long-term care facilities – have come to rely on David’s in-depth expertise in all areas of workplace law.

He acts regularly on behalf of employers during certification applications, collective bargaining, rights and interest arbitration, and advises on collective agreement administration where interpretation, employment standards and human rights issues often arise.

David joined us in 2001 after being one of four students to graduate from Queen’s University’s inaugural joint cooperative Master of Industrial Relations/Bachelor of Laws program.
