Experience in the Workplace

Shields O'Donnell MacKillop LLP is a boutique management-side labour and employment law firm. Our lawyers are leaders in the field, assisting employers of all sizes, from small businesses to large corporations. We act for both non-union and unionized employers. The firm also represents senior management and executive employees in negotiating fair compensation and severance.

Our advantage comes from understanding your business and its needs.

SOM employs a proactive approach: we aim to reduce workplace litigation by advising management and human resources professionals on all aspects of workplace law. Our team provides practical advice on employment contracts, discipline and dismissals, labour relations and regulatory compliance, in order to reduce or avoid the costs of dispute resolution.

However, if litigation is required we have more than 100 years of collective experience in acting on behalf of clients in complex, high-stakes labour and employment litigation. Our advocacy skills are respected in the legal community and our professionals are committed to achieving results for our clients.
