Brandon practises in all areas of labour, employment and human rights law in the workplace.

Brandon uses his technical knowledge of workplace law and general labour law to find the best strategies for his clients. Clients enjoy working with Brandon for his ability to present all the options and evaluate them with a reasoned approach. He has represented employers in workplace arbitrations, collective agreement disputes and human rights grievances.

Brandon excels in quickly evaluating different perspectives and delivering creative solutions

Brandon’s unique past job experiences allow him to think holistically about the challenges that many employers and employees face. The combination of Brandon’s past experience as a labourer in a lumber mill and his years as a workplace lawyer, means Brandon excels in quickly evaluating different perspectives and delivering creative solutions. This broad outlook serves him well when drafting employment agreements and workplace policies and during grievance arbitrations.

Often sharing his expertise, Brandon also writes for publications such as Canadian HR Reporter, Business in Vancouver and The Lawyers’ Daily on topics related to labour, employment and human rights law.

Brandon spends the hockey and baseball seasons cheering on the Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Blue Jays. In between games, he (semi-successfully) runs marathons and works on improving his limited snowboarding and golfing skills.
