Herbert has over 15 years of experience advising and advocating for employers in all areas of labour and employment law.

Herbert has a broad range of experience in many sectors of the economy, including but not limited to construction, manufacturing, building services, health care, and the broader public sector. In addition to labour and employment law, Herbert advises employers in pension and benefits law and workplace immigration matters.

Herbert believes in giving practical and cost effective advice to employers as he is always mindful of practical realities of managing an organization. Herbert assists employers on a daily basis on issues ranging from the discipline and termination of employees to labour relations implications related to corporate restructuring.

Herbert regularly assists unionized employers with collective bargaining and is not afraid of litigating a dispute if it could not be resolved. He often appears before the Ontario Labour Relations Board, grievance arbitrators, and the Human Rights Tribunal.

Herbert obtained his law degree from Queen’s University where he was fortunate to have been awarded multiple course prizes for top academic standing. Prior to law school, Herbert obtained hands on labour relations experience working for an employers’ association which provided labour relations services to over a hundred social service employers.

Outside of work, Herbert has served on the Board of Directors for several not-for-profit organizations / charities. Herbert can also understand conversational Cantonese.
