STUART RUDNER

Stuart Rudner, Employment Lawyer and Mediator

At Rudner Law, we are passionate about helping our clients. We work with employers and individuals at all stages of the employment relationship, from the “courtship” to the marriage to the breakup, including all the bumps along the road.

Our approach is simple. We want to understand people’s circumstances, concerns and goals. We can explain how the law applies to their situation, discuss the options and strategies available, and the pros and cons of each. They can then take all of that into account, along with the business and other factors, and decide what makes sense for their organization.

We work with clients to ensure they understand the legal implications of any issue, as well as their rights and obligations, to minimize the risk of a claim. If, however, a company is faced with a lawsuit, human rights complaint or health and safety claim, Rudner Law will take the lead in preparing a strategy to respond.

Stuart Rudner is the founder of Rudner Law (RudnerLaw.ca). He is a senior lawyer, mediator and arbitrator, and can be reached at stuart@rudnerlaw.ca, (416) 864-8500 or (905) 209-6999, and you can follow him on Twitter @RudnerLaw.
