Greg is a partner in our Toronto office. He has worked in all areas of labour and employment law, with a particular focus in union negotiations, labour disputes, civil and labour litigation, and employee relations. Greg also has a focus on construction labour relations, and has represented construction employers and construction employer associations in a variety of OLRB proceedings. Greg has also represented important players in the airline, retail, rail and mining industries. Greg regularly appears before adjudicative tribunals, including the OLRB, the HRTO, grievance and interest arbitrators, and courts at all levels.
Greg has extensive experience working with large national and international employers, including federally regulated organizations. However, many of Greg’s clients are mid-sized local employers who rely on him as an extension of their human resources department.
Greg’s objective is to find practical solutions to real problems, so that his clients can focus on their core business instead of labour/employment distractions. Greg is adept at explaining the law in a comprehensible (and sometimes entertaining) way to non-lawyers, as well as to American and foreign audiences.
Greg served for several years as an officer in the Royal Canadian Armoured Corps (Reserve), specializing in reconnaissance. It was in that context that Greg gained his first experience in management and leadership. It was also there that he learned to communicate plainly and directly.
