Andrew advises and advocates for clients on a wide range of workplace law issues in both unionized and non-unionized environments. He advises clients on recruitment, discipline, terminations, attendance and disability management, accommodations, workplace investigations, human rights, freedom of information and privacy matters, as well as labour relations, the interpretation of collective agreements and grievance arbitrations. Andrew also helps clients navigate various local government issues and litigation processes, including at the courts, labour arbitrations, the human rights tribunal and other administrative tribunals.

Andrew completed his law degree from the University of Ottawa’s French Common Law Program. Following his call to the Ontario bar in 2012, he began his legal career with one of Canada’s pre-eminent labour and employment law groups on Bay Street before moving to a boutique firm repeatedly recognized as one of the best in Canada where he advocated on behalf of employees and employers alike.
