Testimonials

Home

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.

I have had the pleasure to know Stuart Rudner now for a number of years. In my capacity as a senior HR leader, I have found Stuart’s employment law advice to always be strategic. He is both proactive and responsive, and is a true partner and advocate for the companies that I have been associated with.

Home

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.

Some Testimonials

I can’t recommend Stuart and the team at Rudner law enough.  I have engaged them with several clients and have been very happy with their support.

Highly recommend Stuart Rudner to mediate your Employment Law cases

Having over 30 years of experience in representing Executive Employees and Companies, large and small, and having known Stuart Rudner since the late 90’s, I would highly recommend Stuart to mediate your Employment Law cases. Stuart is an authority in Employment Law and also very personable. He is able to combine his extensive knowledge of Employment Law and his interpersonal skills to resolve cases. He clearly prides himself on his ability to help parties resolve their disputes, and he works tirelessly to do so. Stuart does everything he can to achieve a positive result. I look forward to having Stuart mediate my future Employment Law cases.

Workplace Safety Group has a long-standing, professional relationship with Stuart Rudner, of Rudner Law, both as its’ corporate counsel, and as a referral resource for clients dealing with issues around workplace harassment and violence, unlawful dismissal and other employment issues. All clients WSG has referred have had successful outcomes due to Mr. Rudner’s knowledge, skill and dedicated attention to the case at hand.

On a personal note, Stuart is approachable, values-centred and an exceptional communicator, stemming from his passion to help his clients. Where some might hesitate to contact a lawyer, I would recommend Rudner Law as a first stop when dealing with employment matters. WSG is fortunate to have Rudner Law on our team as legal counsel, and to the benefit of our clients.
