Each client operates under a unique set of circumstances. Ruth works with her clients to understand their situation and tailors her advice to the client’s needs, whether large or small. Her focus is always on providing practical advice, not only on the law, but how it affects her clients in their daily work. Some examples of how Ruth has achieved this are:

  • Structuring successful terminations, and advising clients how best to proceed if there is a wrongful dismissal claim;
  • Advising a professional disciplinary body on administrative law matters; and
  • Assisting clients in all aspects of the collective bargaining relationship.
