What clients said
“From the very outset of our relationship, Rick has
sought to bring a practical and pragmatic approach
to the practice of law, and understands very well the
context of our business – and the many dynamics
within which his advice must be applied.”
“With his in-depth understanding of labour law and
collective bargaining, Rick is able to add value in
ways that only an elite group of lawyers can.”
“His grasp of labour, employment and administrative
law is complete, but not doctrinaire, and he has
taken the time to understand us as a client, so he
is able to think creatively.”
“I have never worked with better.”
