Global reach, regional focus The top 10 Ontario regional firms are proud of their mid-market positions but say that doesn’t mean they can’t serve clients around the world.

Opportunities have certainly opened up for Ontario’s full-service regional firms in recent years. Since Canadian Lawyer last ranked them along with their Quebec peers in 2006, two of the top three have moved on or out. The top firm, McMillan Binch Mendelsohn LLP, has rebranded itself as McMillan LLP and combined forces with Lang Michener LLP to join the national crowd. And who could forget the March 2007 dissolution of the once-formidable Goodman and Carr LLP, which placed third in the 2006 rankings? “I think that’s to our benefit,” Torkin Manes LLP managing partner Jeffrey Cohen says of these departures from the mid-market.

Welcome to the Employer Defense Law Blog

This blog is dedicated to a discussion of many of the different areas of employment law confronted by employers in today’s workplace – and the changes regularly occurring there.

Perhaps more than ever before, change happens rapidly in the workplace.  In part, change has occurred because of changes in technology.  Not long ago, the notion of drafting a social media policy to govern employees’ postings on the Internet was unimaginable.  Now, employers grapple with such policies and their consequences.

Change also comes to the workplace because of changes in administrations.  During the last two years, the administration in Washington has moved aggressively in a number of areas affecting employers.  The EEOC promises more vigorous enforcement.  The NLRB makes law that affects non-unionized workforces.  Congress and the courts consider issues that impact the relationship between employers and employees.
