Stewart McKelvey is an innovative law firm who has earned an established national and international reputation for delivering first-rate results for our clients. We act for local, national and international clients and have grown to become one of the 20 largest law firms in Canada. Our team of more than 200 lawyers and 300 support staff in six cities across Atlantic Canada share a single objective – the best results for our clients. Lawyers within the Labour and Employment practice area work closely with the owners and managers of many of Atlantic Canada’s leading corporate and institutional employers, both large and small, private and public sectors, to fully understand their businesses and challenges they face. This enables them to be highly effective in developing strategies to avoid problems to the greatest extent possible while fully asserting the employer’s right to manage the workplace effectively and efficiently. Their clients include key participants in the retail trade, the service sector, healthcare, post-secondary education, all of the traditional resource based industries and emerging areas such as oil and gas and information technology.
