“As an employer with 40+ employees, navigating Ontario’s employment and labour laws has been challenging at times. Since 2018, Rishi has provided us with counsel and representation with respect to employee relation matters. He has guided us through complex and restrictive amendments to the Employment Standards Act and Labour Relations Act, which improved our human resources functions. He advised and effectively represented us through collective bargaining negotiations – a process we had not been through before.
We value Rishi’s advice and representation, particularly during this uncertain and rapidly evolving time created by COVID-19. He is friendly, available when we need him, explains the law to us in a way that is easy to digest and provides us with practical and value added advice concerning our legal obligations towards employees. We have no hesitation in recommending Rishi to growing or established businesses.”

“From start to finish, through his exemplary professionalism and compassion for the hurt I was experiencing, Rishi made me feel calm and confident throughout my legal claim. Always readily available to talk, listen or review details of my file, Rishi was attentive, delivered practical advice and always left me feeling positive and unafraid. His refusal to never give up and push forward resulted in a quick and positive outcome. He will forever be my personal Rock Star!”.
“The one thing you learn right after meeting Rishi, is his genuine interest in getting to know what your needs are. He has taken time to understand the early learning and care industry and the complexities that are unique to the field. When it was time to re-asses some significant human resources documents for our organization he gave us invaluable legal advice in relation to labour matters. He is responsive to our questions, shows integrity in his work ethics and is always open to our questions, no matter how big or small. Working with Rishi gives me peace of mind in that I can consult and receive a knowledgeable and timely answer on issues regarding our workforce. Rishi is our “go to” when we need legal advice”.

The business of employment law is tough. It would appear there is an inherent conflict in putting all aspects of a client’s interest first, and being financially rewarded, either through a long-drawn case or repeat business. Therefore, it is inspiring when one encounters Rishi, a skilled attorney who delivers professional work of the highest quality, while retaining his objectivity, integrity and most importantly, his heart in his work.

I chose Rishi Bandhu as my legal representative because I was impressed from the first meeting by his honesty and candor. I was never disappointed. Rishi fiercely represented my interests, always giving me solid advice that was consistently in my favour. I couldn’t have been happier with my outcome and would confidently retain him again or refer his services to others.

Rishi has been a trusted advisor to our company for 7 years. During that time, he has looked after our interest with integrity, efficiency, and timeliness. He has always been easy to reach and quick to respond. I value his clear and concise communications style. More than an effective litigator on our behalf, he has helped us to negotiate out of difficult situations and avoid expensive litigation.
