Graeme* is a founding partner at Roper Greyell, where he provides strategic and practical advice to employers on labour, employment and human rights issues in the workplace.

Before he was a lawyer, Graeme was a labour relations expert for several national companies — he brings a client’s perspective and concerns to legal challenges. His clients are varied and represent the rich diversity of businesses in British Columbia, which creates an interesting and challenging work environment for him to develop strategic results and solutions in.

Graeme assists employers with executive contracts and compensation, stock options and equity incentive programs, restrictive covenants, termination strategies, wrongful dismissal, performance management, progressive discipline, union terminations, managing medical information, duty to accommodate, injunctions, court advocacy and mediation and collective agreement grievance arbitration. Graeme has appeared before courts of all jurisdictions in British Columbia as well as before the Labour Relations Board, the Human Rights Tribunal, and the Employment Standards Tribunal.

Outside of the office, Graeme can be found chasing a small plastic ball around a golf course, sampling a nice bottle of wine, or enjoying BC’s mountain vistas on skis.
