Hi, I’m Jeff Dutton. Welcome.
Duttonlaw.ca started as a blog for my law firm, Dutton Employment Law, in 2016, covering Canadian employment law news and tips.
We represented employees and companies in all industries, particularly social-media technology companies, national telecoms and big-five banks.
In March 2023, I left the day-to-day practice of Dutton Employment Law to focus on my HR legal technology company, goHeather.
This old website, duttonlaw.ca, has now pivoted to a new technology company offering access to lawyers who provide access-to-justice focused unbundled legal services, particularly consultations and document review.
In this way, duttonlaw.ca provides affordable consultations to individuals looking for a quick chat. Why? That’s the best part of being a lawyer – helping people get information, especially when they are worried and stressed.
In addition, we decided to keep our blog up because it got a lot of traffic and we wanted to monetize it. Now, therefore, our blog is about almost anything and everything related to business, employment and tech in Canada generally, which is the intersection of my professional experience, interests and hobbies. Some of the posts are written because I think they will get a lot of traffic on a relevant topic, and some of the posts are written because I just had an opinion on the subject that I wanted to share.
As a law firm from 2016-2023, Dutton Employment Law was honoured with peer-reviewed recognition and invitations to speak at conferences. In 2019, following a four-year merger ending in 2023 with fast growing industry leader Monkhouse Law, The Dutton Employment Law Group (our new name following our merger) was nominated for the 2019 Canadian HR Awards: Labour & Employment Law Boutique of the Year. In 2021, 2020, 2018 and 2017, The Dutton Employment Law Group was also nominated for the Canadian HR Reporter’s Best Employment and Labour Law Boutique.
We have appeared in newspapers, magazines, textbooks, journals, TV and radio.
