At SWL, we typically work with
five different types of clients:
We love to get in on the ground level! Our team has valuable experience working with companies that are in the early stages of their formation and growth. They have a vision – and they’re also smart enough to acknowledge where they can use some outside expertise. Oftentimes, these clients don’t just want to do things well; they want to set the bar on how a modern company treats its people.
These businesses might be five years old or five decades old, and during that time, they’ve witnessed changes in the workforce, social climate, and what customers demand. They see potential risks and opportunities in the handling of issues like gender-free bathrooms, inclusive hiring practices, and innovative compensation practices – and they can use some guidance in getting ahead and getting things right. We work directly with executives, HR, and general counsel to ensure policies, contracts, and procedures are in-step with modern expectations and legal standards.
Those in the throes
of a crisis.
It’s happened and it’s best to be blunt about it: “it” has hit the fan. When an organization is facing a significant workplace or labour law litigation, it’s time to bring in the experts. We provide thorough and fair counsel, investigations, interviews, and negotiations. And if it comes to it, commanding and effective courtroom representation.
Whether they’re in talks of forming or a long-established entity, SWL works with unionized employers to develop a bargaining strategy, respond to union grievances, win at grievance arbitration, and effectively manage relations with the union.
SWL works with individual employees and freelancers to help them through the life cycle of their work relationship, from signing the contract, to difficulties in the workplace, to termination. We are there for you.
