by HR Law Canada

Littler, a global employment and labour law firm representing management, has bolstered its Canadian presence with the addition of five new legal professionals to its Toronto office.

This expansion includes Gerald Griffiths, who joins as a partner, and associates Kemi Faneye, Natalie Nicholson, Micah Fysh, and David McIsaac.

Gerald Griffiths, along with associates Faneye and Nicholson, come from Sherrard Kuzz. Fysh joins from Filion Wakely Thorup Angeletti, while McIsaac transitions from an articling student to an associate at Littler.

These arrivals follow the recent addition of partners Matthew Badrov, Shana French, and Stephen Shore to the Toronto team.

“The growth of our Toronto office is driven by market demand and our commitment to attracting top-tier talent to provide exceptional client service,” said Erin Webber, Littler’s managing director and president. “Gerald, in particular, will play a pivotal role in guiding our clients through the complexities of this region.”

Griffiths brings extensive expertise in employment and labour law, advising multi-national and multi-jurisdictional entities, it said. His practice includes civil litigation, collective bargaining, employment contracts, grievance arbitration, human rights, and workplace investigations. Griffiths is also a speaker on employment and labour law topics and is affiliated with the Law Society of Ontario, the Canadian Bar Association, and the Ontario Bar Association.

“I’m thrilled to welcome Gerald to our growing team. His extensive experience and strategic insights will be invaluable to our firm and, most importantly, to our clients,” said Stephen Shore, managing partner of Littler’s Toronto office.

Associates Faneye, Fysh, and Nicholson each bring a wealth of experience in employment-related disputes and workplace investigations. Their academic credentials include J.D. degrees from Osgoode Hall Law School and the University of Ottawa, with undergraduate degrees from Wilfrid Laurier University, McGill University, and Queen’s University, respectively. McIsaac holds a J.D. from Osgoode Hall Law School, a master’s degree from the University of Toronto, and a BCom from York University.
