Testimonials

“Ib was recommended to me by a friend after I and three other colleagues were wrongfully dismissed by the company, and left dry by our Union …. He explained the law and the process how to proceed with the case. From the very beginning Ib was very honest about all possible outcomes, he never made unrealistic promises and advised us of a hard and long way ahead of us. … WE WON!! And we kept winning. Anyone needing legal help with employment and labour issues should consider themselves very lucky to get Ib to represent them.”

“We’re a smaller company (40 employees). We rely on Ib for advice on management contracts, confidentiality agreements, employee manuals and on, thankfully rare occasions, disputes. Ib has a great way to simplify the complexity of employment law, labor relations and human resources, which greatly benefits our company, and our employees as well.”

“I would heartily recommend Ib to anyone … in a termination case.   I fired an employee who had been running my business for some years. The business had suffered significantly. I was fortunate to be referred to Ib. I met with Ib immediately, and found him to be straightforward, personable and kind. He helped me take the emotion out of the process and encouraged me to find the evidence needed. When the time came for Examination for Discovery we had found hundreds of examples of wrongdoing. I would not have wanted to be the person on the other end of Ib’s questioning. During mediation Ib was resolute, and I could not have been happier with the result. Ib’s legal fees were shockingly reasonable, and I would recommend him to anyone who finds themselves in this situation.”
