See What Our Clients Have to Say
“Over the past few years, Rishi has proven to be invaluable to our company. He consistently provides professional and friendly service at fair rates. Rishi’s advice in handling various employment matters has resulted in substantial financial savings to our company. Rishi has become our voice of reason; he listens to our concerns and calmly walks us through our options. We fully trust his advice and take comfort in knowing that any problems we encounter are handled by a competent and knowledgeable professional. Rishi truly goes the “extra mile” in providing superior service.”
“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 reassess 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.”
“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.”
Rishi has been providing services to Vision Transportation Inc. and its related companies since 2013. Working in both federal and provincial jurisdictions can be challenging, but Rishi provides us with steady and sound guidance when we need advice and, occasionally, legal representation. Rishi is always responsive, strategic and practical with his advice. I would have no trouble recommending Rishi to anyone who employs individuals in Ontario under provincial or federal laws.
“I first met Rishi about 15 years ago, where as a junior lawyer he helped the temporary agency I owned at the time deal with an employee issue. Rishi and I lost touch for a number of years, but I never forgot his common sense litigation approach which helped us resolve the issue satisfactorily and allowed us to get back to business. I reached out to Rishi again a couple years ago and since then he has helped BOSS Staffing proactively address HR related issues to avoid costly issues. We’re glad to have Rishi on speed dial!”
