Adam is an associate at Roper Greyell, practicing in all areas of workplace law.

A self-described “jack-of-all-trades”, Adam is a well-rounded advocate for his clients. From litigation before courts and administrative tribunals to day-to-day advice, he enjoys helping clients find proactive and practical solutions to issues arising in the workplace. Above all, Adam enjoys the people-centric nature of workplace law and being a calm presence for clients as they work through challenging problems.

Adam studied law at Queen’s University, where he gained experience as a volunteer with the Canadian Labour and Employment Law Journal and as an oralist in two moot competitions focused on workplace law. He also spent an exchange semester studying law in Barcelona.

Prior to joining Roper Greyell, Adam practiced at a boutique firm specializing in workplace law in Ontario. He maintained a broad practice, including human rights, labour arbitrations, civil litigation, and investigations. While an articling student, he completed a secondment with the Ontario Labour Relations Board and was recently seconded as a labour relations manager at an organization in the financial services sector.

Outside the office, Adam can usually be found baking or cooking a new vegetarian meal, reading, and spending time with family. Adam is also fluent in Spanish.
