Certainty, Predictability & Peace of Mind
Have you ever received an invoice from your lawyer and questioned how you could possibly owe that much? Or why on earth your lawyer charged you for one tenth of an hour for your quick phone call? Sounds absurd, right? Well, you can thank the billable hour and that lawyer’s billing targets, likely imposed upon them by their firm. Believe it or not, this archaic billing practice is still used by almost all Calgary-based law firms. We know clients hate this – and guess what? So do we. Except only in the rarest of circumstances (i.e. complex and lengthy litigation which we will discuss with you in advance and happily work with you to arrive at a satisfactory solution that reflects your budget), we have forever banned, banished and outlawed the billable hour from our firm. Yep – good riddance, billable hour. We think this allows us to provide greater certainty, predictability, value and importantly, peace of mind for you, our clients who we work for. We work hard to put the client focus back in client-focused legal services and are proud to be Calgary’s first and only dedicated employment law firm to operate according to an easy-to-understand and transparent flat-fee structure. Our fees are pre-set and communicated to you up front – no surprises, hidden add-ons or departures from the amount we quote you. Allow us to focus on your legal matter without any distracting concerns about fees and invoices. That’s our promise to you – peace of mind.

Client-Focused Calgarians Serving Calgarians
No lawyers better understand the distinct needs of Calgary-based employees than life-long Calgarians. Our founding lawyer, Stephen, is a born and raised Calgarian. Stephen has witnessed the City grow, develop, prosper and, yes, suffer economically, first-hand; he’s been here through it all. Because of this, we are uniquely knowledgeable of the local labour market and regional dynamics, in a way no employment lawyer from Edmonton, Vancouver, Saskatoon, Toronto, Halifax or abroad can match. We live and breathe Calgary, keep our earnings here and reinvest in the local community. We are fully committed to Calgary’s well-being; which fundamentally depends on a healthy workforce – you. Let us work together in strengthening the local labour market and making our City a better place to live, work and play for all of us.
Top-Tier Education and Training
Our lawyers have received their legal training from some of Canada’s undisputed best and top-ranked law firms. We were academic high-achievers and graduated with our law degrees from some of the top Canadian law schools. We pass that significant investment made in us on to our clients – we are all about paying it forward to you. We believe this gives our clients the assurances and advantage of knowing their employment law matter is not only being attended to competently, but more importantly, effectively, efficiently and by high-quality legal counsel. Our clients are in good hands.
