Stuart Proactively Protected us by Thinking Ahead

I have known Stuart for many years and when it came time to redo our employment agreements, he was my only call.  He changed our simple 2 page contract to a detailed agreement that protects us and our employees and removed any doubt about our responsibilities under the current laws. We update the agreement every year to make sure it meets the current legislation and best practices.  From Day 1, we had a clause to allow temporary layoffs. I had no clue at the time why Stuart included it in the agreement, but based on the current COVID-19 crisis, I'm glad that he proactively protected us by thinking ahead.

Stuart has assembled a legal team who support him and share his values.

He is both proactive and responsive, and is a true partner and advocate for the companies that I have been associated with.

Thought leader on any employment law topic

Stuart Rudner continues to stand out as a thought leader on any employment law topic. Since becoming an owner manager himself of a boutique employment law firm, Stuart seems to have an even deeper understanding of what it is like to be an employer and has in my opinion become expert in advising owner-managers through issues that may arise in the employer-employee relationship.

I have worked with Stuart, and he has assisted me in providing strategic advice to my clients.

Astute Employment Lawyer

Stuart Rudner is a well-informed, astute Employment Lawyer with his finger on the pulse of emerging developments. His frequent top notch blogs, articles and social media posts are a must read for employers, employees and his peers.

A leader in the field of employment law

I have gotten to know Stuart over the period of time I have been consulting and he has always willingly provided top-notch advice in the area of employment law. I have purchased his textbooks, ”You’re fired – Just Cause for Dismissal in Canada” and have found them to be an invaluable source of information and refer to them frequently. There is no doubt that he is a leader in the field of employment law and I would recommend him to anyone that required legal advice and guidance. One of the things that impresses me most about Stuart is his tireless contribution to the field of employment law and his willingness to offer support wherever and whenever he can. As a small consulting firm, he has offered incredible support to me and I am very grateful for his wisdom and guidance.

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.

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.

A very experienced and talented lawyer

I first came to know Stuart through his advice on LinkedIn and other sources such as HRPA and was very impressed with his knowledge and how he is able to provide solutions. Stuart is a very experienced and talented lawyer when it comes to employment law and I know that no matter how difficult a case, I am fully confident going to him for advice as I consider him to be the best in his field.

I recommend Stuart to all my clients knowing that they are in good hands and will have the best Employment Lawyer!

We needed his top notch guidance

I have found Stuart to be very inclusive. When I asked him to come to St. Catharines to do an Employer Seminar on Terminations – he was immediately willing. We needed his knowledge and practicality in Niagara and he was happy to assist us. Thanks for making the trip, Stuart. Employers ask me when you are coming again.

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.

Instrumental in assisting our clients

I have worked with Stuart for several years now across a number of client projects. Without exception, he continues to handle each situation with great care, integrity, honesty and in a very practical and highly responsive manner.

I rest easy knowing that my employment law and HR issues are in the hands of a true leader when Stuart takes on a file. Stuart has provided his guidance and advice to many of my clients whether they be on the employer or employee side of the legal equation. He is knowledgeable in the law, responsive to the clients, and strategic in his approach. I have no hesitation in recommending Stuart when an employment law issue surfaces.

An excellent lawyer

Our firm had the pleasure of dealing with Stuart Rudner last year. He is, simply put, an excellent lawyer. Throughout the entire project, our Executive Team felt that we were availing ourselves of the best possible legal advice that money could buy. Stuart’s knowledge and diligence, combined with his friendly and approachable manner were truly appreciated by our organization. I would not hesitate to recommend Stuart to anyone.
