Executive Summary

Natalie has been an associate with the firm since 2018. Before joining the firm she was a summer student and articled with a boutique management-side labour and employment law firm in Toronto. During her articles, she seconded with the Ontario Labour Relations Board where she obtained valuable insight into its adjudication process.

Natalie provides advice and representation to private and public sector employers in all areas of management-side labour and employment law, with a focus on labour relations (including construction labour relations), human rights issues, and collective agreement interpretation. Natalie has successfully assisted clients in responding to various labour related issues including, but not limited to, union certification, grievance arbitration, complaints of unfair labour practices, jurisdictional and sector disputes, and collective bargaining.
