About our guest speaker:

After graduating university, J.D. worked as a labour relations consultant assisting employers with labour relations and human resources issues, acting as a part-time human resources department for organizations that did not have full-time HR support.

J.D. is a firm believer in management rights and his practice is devoted to supporting employers in effectively managing the human resources side of their organizations. He provides strategic advice, representation and counsel regarding labour, employment, human rights, health & safety and other employment-related areas of the law.

His primary focus is advocacy for employers, including litigation, negotiation and mediation. Regardless the situation, J.D. seeks a cost-effective solution that respects the fundamental rights of the employer to manage. In order to assist clients with achieving their objectives, he provides advice and assistance with planning both long and short-term strategies which advance the organization’s goals with respect to its relations with employees and unions.

J.D. played a number of sports competitively, but none of them well enough that you would have heard of him. He thoroughly dislikes losing. His time as a tennis coach specializing in training high-performance junior tennis players was the highlight of his athletic pursuits.
