Who We Are

We are lawyers who view the world differently: We think in colour.

We know there are no black and white answers. We look beyond the law to consider the practical implications each decision will have, so that you can make the choice that best meets your needs.

We are creative, personable and easy to work with. We strive to make your job both easier and more enjoyable. And we’re on your side.

Nice things people have said about us (yes our mothers are proud):

“An excellent training experience, superbly presented.”
“Great presenter and presentation. Very informative and interactive. Kept things interesting relating information to “real life” stories.”
“Very useful information that I can implement. Tools and materials were easy to follow. Excellent trainer!”
“This was a great session. I’ve learned a lot and gained valuable insight into how to conduct investigations.”
“Very well done. I enjoyed the content and appreciated the templates. I also think the video of the interview was well done and very helpful (one of the best mock interviews I have seen).”
“Ruben, a true professional, has the ability to combine extensive experience, broad legal knowledge, intellectual savvy, courtesy and sincerity, which makes it an absolute pleasure to work with him.”
“I’ve consulted with Ruben many times over the years for advice, insights and recommendations. His in-depth understanding of all aspects of labour law is unmatched, and his ability to simplify and explain complex concepts is remarkable. Ruben is a gifted communicator and relationship-builder, and a valued expert that our team will continue relying on.”
“Ruben and his team are phenomenal legal and strategic partners. Their team demonstrates a high level of business acumen, compassion and proactive partnership.”
“Bernardi has given our management team the confidence we need to maintain a current and professional human resources program. When issues or questions arise, they are readily available and have the answers – and they always take time to carefully explain all of our options and outcomes.”
