Heeney Vokey LLP’s employment lawyers have a diverse employment law practice which operates from their downtown Toronto office.

The firm’s employer clients include:

  • financial institutions,
  • post secondary institutions,
  • not-for-profit organizations,
  • manufacturing,
  • sales,
  • professionals (dentists/doctors/accountants),
  • retail establishments,
  • medical associations, and
  • international organizations.

We assist our clients in both day-to-day advice as well as with litigation support in all aspects of employment law.

Heeney Vokey LLP has built long term relationships with its clients by focusing on three things.

First, we ensure clients make educated decisions which are in their organization’s best interest. There are times where employers need to take a hard stance and require a confident advocate to lead them in disputes, quite possibly in court. The lawyers at Heeney Vokey LLP have the skills and experience to successfully gain results in this area.

Second, our employment lawyers provide timely advice. Employment matters are often time sensitive and we strive daily to provide not only great advice but advice which is delivered to the client expeditiously.

Third, we focus on integrity. This means putting ourselves in our client’s shoes to fully understand their situation when we present our advice. We concentrate on providing clients with all of their legal options as well as our opinion given our extensive experience. We then allow clients to make the decision which is best for them.

There is a balance that needs to be achieved between legal rights and good long-term decision-making. Where it is necessary to access the courts or a tribunal in order to pursue or defend a position, we have extensive litigation experience to strongly represent our clients’ interests. However, not every case is one that should be litigated. Our approach and sound understanding of employment law allows us to confidently advise clients about their rights and whether a practical solution can be achieved which meets their needs and interests. It is our “client first” approach which has helped build our lawyers’ reputations as trusted advisors.

Heeney Vokey LLP’s employment lawyers strive to help clients determine what the best long term decision is for them.
