A Litigation Employment Group

  • It can be estimated that 99% of all employment law cases settle (*past results do not mean future success) our law group has and will continue to go to trial. Other Toronto wrongful dismissal, employment, human rights and labour lawyers know this. Our history is our client’s advantage.

  • Still, we know the value of settlement, and that’s sometimes our first goal so as to avoid risk and expense. Whether it is a wrongful termination or a human rights case, rest assured, an employment lawyer at our law group will strive to quickly settle your GTA workplace legal issues.

A Well Prepared Law Group

  • Dutton Employment Law understands that preparation is the key to success. We know that the most prepared party who has done the most investigation, research and analysis is almost always the most successful one. That is why we will listen carefully to our clients to understand their particular circumstances, and once engaged, become methodical in approach and vigorous in execution. Victory is our heritage.

  • An Ontario based labour and employment law lawyer carefully but efficiently reviews and analyzes all facts, circumstances and potential legal arguments in the most comprehensive way possible, allowing us to anticipate and beat all issues and ensure client success. Our formula for professional excellence is in our DNA and its why we attract, and maintain, high-level work and international clients.
