Canadian HR Reporter unveils impressive list of leaders in legal arena
Canadian HR Reporter is very pleased to present the 5-Star Employment Law Firms & Lawyers for 2022.
Over nearly two years of upheaval during the COVID-19 pandemic, Canada’s legal community has faced a surge in employer queries as organizations contend with dramatic changes to legislation, workplace mandates and other employment law issues.
Some of top concerns have included vaccines and mask mandates, the rise of remote work and hybrid setups, and mental health challenges.
But judging by the responses to our report, law firms and employment lawyers have met the challenge head-on.
That includes Roper Greyell LLP, one of the largest firms in Western Canada, delivering practical and cost-effective solutions for clients’ workplace issues.
On the individual side, standouts include:
- Nancy Shapiro, partner at Koskie Minksy LLP in Toronto, a leading practitioner in both employer and employee sides of employment law
- Sandra Guarascio, partner at Roper Greyell in Vancouver, where she practices in all areas of employment and labour law, with a focus on human rights and respectful workplace issues
- Thomas A. Roper, chair and founding partner at Roper Greyell in Vancouver, who advises employers on all aspects of employment law and labour relations and represents clients in employment-related litigation.
To determine the top lawyers and law firms, Canadian HR Reporter sourced feedback from HR leaders over a period of 15 weeks. The research team then assigned weighted values to the services offered by law firms to their employment clients.
The research team also spoke to hundreds of employment professionals, asking them to rate the employment law firms and lawyers they had worked with over the previous 12 months. In addition, the team sought the opinions of employment lawyers themselves to find out which law firms they would recommend besides their own.
At the end of the research period, the law firms and lawyers that received the highest rankings in terms of work quality, specialist expertise and client service were declared 5-Star Award winners in the field of employment law.
