Sandra Chiodo, Human Resources Director

I highly recommend Crawford, Chondon and Partners LLP, as a professional and knowledgeable law firm.  Their team of expert labour and employment lawyers are easily accessible and provide great advice on all types of legal issues that arise in the workplace.  Their knowledge and expertise has assisted us in managing some difficult legal issues and it is a pleasure to work with CCP.

Doug Friesen, President Friesen’s Workplace Safety Services Inc.

I was initially referred to CCPartners in 2004. Since then whenever a client needed support for legal matters stemming from the Occupational Health & Safety Act, or technical issues concerning employment law matters, I have referred them to CCPartners.  Not once have I received anything but gratitude and sincere thanks for those referrals. Members of the CCP team have also spoken at our client events, largely in the construction industry. 

Most of my client base is small to medium sized businesses.  CCPartners’ ability to provide well informed and timely advice and service, at rates that today’s competitive business market demand, allows me to refer my clients to them without hesitation.

With confidence from personal experience, and client feedback over the past many years, it’s easy for me to say to clients, “make the call” to the team of professionals at CCPartners.

Rocco Volpe, President Structural Group of Companies

We have been working with CCPartners for almost ten years on different levels of legal and administration matters such as workplace issues, construction site investigations, occupational health and safety, workplace policies and employment issues. We always rely on their advice on legal matters. Their outstanding representation of our firm in court proved that they have a thorough understanding of our cases and our needs.

We recommend CCPartners to whoever needs any advice and guidance in employer/employee issues, and legal representation in a court of law.

Mike Kashty, Chief Financial Officer Equipment Sales & Service Limited

Equipment Sales & Service Limited (ESS) has been a client of CCPartners for many years.  Their advice and support has been invaluable in helping us navigate the ever changing minefield that is labour and employment  law.   The CCP  team provides practical advice on a timely basis in a manner we can understand and implement.    I think that is what people are looking for in their legal counsel.

Gregory Vogt P.Eng. President, Eastern Power Limited

CCPartners are a tough, smart experienced team of professionals that will ensure you know the lay of the land.  Whether it be labour law, government regulation, health and safety, or even litigation in any of these areas, CCPartners has always provided us with bench strength that ensures successful outcomes.  Nobody likes to take a knife to a gunfight, with CCPartners you will have the highest calibre team.  As a brutally honest, and efficient team,  the fog is quickly lifted ensuring that resources are not wasted.  We have worked with larger “downtown” firms in the past, but since our earliest experiences with the founding members of CCPartners nearly 20 years ago, we have never used any other labour/employment law firm.  I am sure once you use them, you will come to the same conclusion we did.

Doug Munro, President Maritime Ontario / Canada's Best Managed Companies

We have worked with CCPartners for a number of years.   As a federally-regulated employer, we value CCP’s expertise in both the federal sector and transportation industry.   They deliver exceptional service, are always available to give advice and work as a team to ensure we get the advice we need when we need it.   In addition to their excellent service, CCP is also community-minded and supports a number of local charitable organizations which is important to us as an organization that also believes in giving back to the community.    We would not hesitate to recommend CCP to any employer looking for a trusted advisor in the area of workplace law.

Joy Lerman & Terri Carr Professional Development Consultants

We have been very fortunate to partner with CCP for over 20 years to provide training for the Not-for-Profit Child Care community on a variety of employment topics including contracts, human rights obligations, and staff management. We have had the privilege of co-facilitating these workshops with a number of the firm's lawyers and in every instance their knowledge and ability to relate to the audience always garners rave reviews. CCP has collaborated with us on a number of projects to ensure we can provide the child care community with tools and resources to assist organizations in dealing with today’s challenging employment environments. Additionally, many of our clients now use the firm for their organization’s legal needs a true testament to their understanding of the every changing needs of the child care community.

Kirk Brannon, President Non-union Steel Manufacturer

We have been working with Crawford Chondon & Partners LLP for more than 20 years now. We have always been impressed by the firm’s practical approach to workplace issues and its outstanding service. We have worked with both partners and associate lawyers at the firm and we have always received timely legal advice that often goes beyond the issue at hand and assists us in addressing the ‘bigger’ workplace issues at play. We would recommend the firm’s services to anyone looking for knowledgeable, cost-effective and service oriented legal advice in the area of labour and employment law.

Stacey Duggan, Chief Operations Officer Non-union Multi-service Provider for Staffing Agencies

The Staffing Edge has been using the legal services of CCPartners for 20 years. As one of Peel Region’s largest employers we face a many challenging workplace issues. CCP has the depth and experience to assist us in resolving these issues and takes a more ‘long term’ pro-active and practical approach when giving their advice. When issues can’t be resolved through a more pro-active approach, the firm will aggressively defend our company’s interests, whether before the Courts, at the Labour Board or the Human Rights Tribunal. CCPartners has proven to be a valued partner of The Staffing Edge by enabling us to focus on what we do best.

Steve Scott, Human Resources Director Golf Course Operator

For the past 15 years, ClubLink has relied upon the sound counsel of CCP to help us more effectively manage our labour and employment matters in Ontario. I appreciate their pragmatic approach to helping us solve our issues. Their advice and recommendations are always readily applicable and represent their thorough understanding of the unique characteristics of our business. CCP’s representation of ClubLink to third parties is always very professional and well thought out in advance and they are ever mindful of seeking solutions that represent the best possible resolution for ClubLink. Everyone with whom I have had contact with at CCP, be it the partners, associates or their support staff have proven to be very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful and overall a pleasure to work with.
