We are pleased to welcome Danny Bernstein to the partnership.
Having practised law first in Western Australia and then Ontario, Danny moved to British Columbia and joined Roper Greyell in 2015. He acts in all areas of labour, employment, and human rights law in both provincial and federal jurisdictions, regularly helping clients respond to wrongful and constructive dismissal claims, human rights complaints, and statutory entitlement claims.
Roper Greyell founding partner Tom Roper, QC, says, “Danny’s practical, thoughtful, and detail-oriented approach to client issues has made him an invaluable asset to our firm and we’re delighted to recognize his contributions by welcoming him as a partner.”
In addition to his client work, Danny speaks and writes on a broad range of workplace law topics, and conducts seminars and client training on workplace issues. Clients often seek his advice around terminations and layoffs, hiring new employees, and in dealing with complex human rights and performance management challenges. “It’s important to me to get to know and understand my clients and their businesses so that I can play a meaningful role in helping them to achieve their short and long term objectives,” Danny says.
Danny’s move into a partnership role comes on the heels of Roper Greyell having been named by Canadian Lawyer magazine, as one of the country’s Top Ten Labour and Employment Boutique firms. The firm has also been cited by the 2018 edition of Chambers Canada as a leading firm in its field and several of its lawyers have been ranked individually by Chambers as top legal practitioners. “It has been an amazing opportunity for me to learn from some of this country’s best labour and employment lawyers, “ says Danny, “and it’s a huge honour to be asked to take a place among them.”
