Employment, Pensions and Executive Compensation

Our Employment, Pensions and Executive Compensation Group provides comprehensive advice and representation in all areas of employment, pensions and executive compensation matters. We routinely resolve employment issues linked to the most multifaceted, domestic and cross-border transactions in Canada and globally. 

Our lawyers act on some of Canada’s largest transactions and c-suite employment disputes and provide expert counsel to employees and employers in the midst of complex transactions and restructurings.   

Working with colleagues in complementary areas of law, such as securities, corporate and commercial, tax and intellectual property, our sophisticated team understands the business implications of pragmatic advice.  We take care to understand our clients’ circumstances and deliver workable and bespoke solutions. Our public, private, non-profit and charitable sector clients benefit from our foresight and solution-driven approach. 

Our practice extends beyond day-to-day employment advisory on statutory and regulatory employment matters. We advise employers on their legal obligations in the context of individual and collective terminations and layoffs, including preparing severance and departure arrangements, and provide employee compensation and benefits advice related to start-ups and business expansions, mergers and acquisitions, divestments, restructurings, insolvencies, and other business transactions.
