Why Practice at Filion Wakely Thorup Angeletti?

For a student interested in labour law, Filion Wakely Thorup Angeletti LLP offers an exciting and rewarding articling program, with excellent opportunities for personal and professional growth.

Filion Wakely Thorup Angeletti LLP is one of the leading firms in the country practising exclusively in the areas of labour and employment law on behalf of management.

We believe that our calibre of our lawyers is unparalleled in our field.  Our national and international peer recognition is exceptional and our depth of experience is unparalleled in comparably sized boutiques.  With the sole exception of Warren Winkler, who left the firm to become a judge and is now the Chief Justice of Ontario, all of our founding partners continue to practise with the firm.   All of our students and lawyers benefit from this experience.

We are firmly committed to promoting from within.  Almost every partner in the firm began as an articling student or junior associate with the firm.

Our lawyers regularly litigate cases before numerous administrative tribunals and all levels of the courts. We also advise management in developing and maintaining sound labour relations policies. For employers involved in labour negotiations, we participate at the bargaining table or behind the scenes.

Our contacts within the community have created opportunities for our associates to be seconded in both business and at the Labour Relations Board.  The hands-on experience and the contacts gained through these placements are invaluable for both the individuals and the firm.

We have an extremely collegial environment.  Not only are doors open in the office, but our students and associates participate in a full range of social activities. Read about our history, areas of practice and clients
