What Others Say


Knowledgeable, strategic and responsive

I have known Stuart for several years, and he has consistently provided my firm with strategic legal advice regarding our employment law concerns. He responds quickly to deal with any issues that arise, and also works with us proactively to reduce our liability while also maximizing our rights as an employer. He is knowledgeable, strategic and responsive, and we look to Stuart and his team as Strategic Advisors when it comes to employment law.

Stuart can be counted on

Stuart is a leader of the employment law bar. He keep abreast of every development in his practice area, and through his blog and constant media presence he helps others keep up as well. Stuart can be counted on to provide practical advice and wise counsel on all aspects of employment law. A good guy to have in your corner!

Stuart is a person of trust

I have known Stuart for more than five years. As an advisor to clients in Senior Management positions I need someone I can trust when I refer clients for legal counsel relating to their employment. Stuart is a person of trust. Not just because of his knowledge and skill in the legal arena but also because of the way he treats people – with care and respect – important at all times but especially during the often tough circumstances he is helping them work through.

He understood my circumstances and concerns

Stuart’s practice is focused on employment law, an area in which he has developed considerable expertise. He provided legal counsel for my termination when I was recently let go. He understood my circumstances and concerns and provided understanding of the legal process and the options available.

Stuart represented me and kept me informed at every stage. He advised and represented me in a manner designed to achieve practical, cost-effective solutions.

With his experience we did not have to go to court in order to reach a reasonable settlement in a short period of time. It was a positive and rewarding experience under the circumstances. Stuart’s focus is the bottom line: helping clients to maximize results while minimizing costs. I strongly recommend that if you have any employment-related issues, including offer letters or severance packages to be reviewed, that you contact Stuart. He advises and represents employers and employees.

Some Testimonials

If you ever require hight level advice

I had the pleasure of meeting Stuart in 2008. He was highly recommended to me by the General Counsel of one of Canada’s largest employers. If you ever require high level advice regarding HR Legal matters I would also recommend him.

Highly recommend Rudner Law

Stuart worked very closely with me at End to End Networks, helping the company to understand its legal obligations and how to best protect our interests. He helped us adopt a strategic but fair approach to HR and HR law.

Based on my experience working with Stuart over an extended period of time, I can honestly say that Stuart is a highly professional and knowledgeable lawyer. He has the ability to put his clients at ease by explaining the “vocabulary” of law in a way that allows them to more easily understand the meaning of contracts, cases and decisions. Stuart shows a high degree of empathy towards his clients. He is very active in both the legal profession and on social media, and I trust his advice completely on legal matters. Stuart has assembled a legal team who support him and share his values.

I met Stuart at TechConnex when he kindly agreed to run a session for my HR Peer Group on employment contracts. Stuart is a firm believer in education and training, and his session was extremely well-received by the peer group.

I highly recommend Rudner Law to anyone who needs legal advice and assistance.

Very proactive and understanding

I had a need to retain the services of a lawyer for a personal legal matter. As I worked at Miller Thomson at the time, in the IT department, I had knowledge of several lawyers I could have worked with but I chose Stuart because I felt that he had integrity and a sense of what is right and what is wrong. In the course of working with him on my legal issue over the next year, I found him to be very proactive and understanding of my issues in this matter. He handled everything with professionalism and class. I would, and have, highly recommended him to anyone that is in need of any legal advice or the services of a litigation lawyer.
