Labour and employment lawyer Matthew Badrov is joining Littler as a partner.

“I’m thrilled to finally be able to share the news that I’m moving my practice to Littler LLP,” he said.

“Badrov, who joins from Sherrard Kuzz, marks Littler’s third partner addition in Toronto in recent months, following the arrivals of Shana French and Stephen Shore,” the firm said in a press release.

“Canada is an important and growing market for Littler and with the latest additions of Matt, Shana and Stephen to our talented team, we are well positioned to further expand our offerings to clients in the market,” said Erin Webber, Littler’s managing director and president.

“Since the opening of our Toronto office nearly a decade ago, Canada has been integral to our ability to provide employers with comprehensive legal services across their global operations. Our clients will continue to benefit immensely from the wide-ranging experience and insights of our Toronto team.”

Wide range of workplace issues

Badrov advises clients on a wide range of workplace issues, including hiring, policy development, labour relations, grievance arbitration, collective bargaining, and misclassification risk. He also has extensive experience in workplace health and safety matters. Badrov has also handled several significant cases in Ontario addressing the gig-economy and modern labour relations.

“Matt brings extensive experience across various areas of labour and employment law, along with a passion for serving clients and collaborating with his colleagues,” said Toronto Office Managing Partner Stephen Shore. “As Canadian employers navigate new and unique challenges, particularly amid this transformative moment for labour relations, they need sharp, knowledgeable counsel who understand the shifting landscape. Matt undoubtedly fits the bill and I’m excited for him to join our growing Toronto team.”

Badrov ‘grateful’ for time at previous firm

In a LinkedIn post, Badrov called his time at Sherrard Kuzz “amazing,” adding he was “grateful for my colleagues and my time spent there.” He joined that firm in 2009 as an articling and summer student, before becoming a lawyer in 2012.

Badrov pointed out the Littler is the “world’s largest labour and employment firm representing the interests of management.”

“Littler is a world class firm and has truly made a name for itself in Canada. This move represents an amazing advancement in my career,” said Badrov. “I look forward to working alongside the talented Toronto team, including my former colleague Shana French, and drawing on Littler’s vast capabilities and diverse range of subject matter knowledge to serve my clients.”

Badrov received his Juris Doctor from the University of Windsor’s Faculty of Law. He also holds a B.A. Honours from the University of Guelph with a major in criminal justice and public policy and a minor in history.
