Speaker bio(s)
Brittany Taylor

I was attracted to employment law because of the people-focused nature of the practice. I enjoy getting to know my clients and learning their stories. Every case is unique, and often deeply personal. At the same time, the stories and situations are inherently relatable, as work forms a hugely significant part of our day to day lives. This area of the law is also constantly evolving, which makes my job even more engaging and challenging. Since being called to the Ontario Bar in 2013, my practice has been dedicated to assisting both employers and employees to manage their workplaces. My approach to workplace issues is one that is pro-active and preventative. I take great satisfaction in assisting employees and employers to identify and deal with potential issues before they have an opportunity to evolve into serious headaches for both parties. I also take great pride in acting as a vigorous advocate on behalf of my clients, whether at the bargaining table or beyond to the trial stage.
