Calgary Employment Law Redefined
Look Beyond the Expected
We are life-long Calgarians and community-based lawyers knowledgeable of the local labour market and regional dynamics. We’ve grown-up in Calgary and worked here, just like you, before becoming employment lawyers. We’ll navigate Calgary’s complex legal landscape for you.
We maintain a centralized business location at one of the City’s coolest, most vibrant and entrepreneurial downtown coworking spaces. Our large private offices provide the confidentiality and privacy afforded by a traditional office space, with a much fresher and enjoyable vibe and at one-third the cost. We pass these savings on directly to our clients by keeping our overhead costs low.
Not a fan of commuting downtown to meet your lawyer in-person?
No problem – we’ll come to you and accommodate you on your schedule and at any location you want. Just say when and where, whether it be in the NW, NE, SW or SE, during the evening or on a weekend or via, FaceTime, Skype, Duo or any other platform you prefer. Being flexible, mobile and cloud-based has its advantages!
