Kelsey has been with CCP since 2006, and a partner since 2013.

Having completed a Master’s Degree in Industrial Relations in addition to his LL.B., Kelsey strives to understand his clients’ “big picture”, allowing him to provide strategic and proactive advice. With this approach, Kelsey has assisted employers across a broad range of industries, both federally and provincially, in avoiding exposure and limiting risk, by helping them to develop and implement sound human resources and labour relations policies and practices. In particular, Kelsey focuses on avoiding or dealing with issues of unionization, unionized labour disputes, collective agreement negotiations and working through the grievance process. 

When an adversarial approach is more appropriate Kelsey is also a proficient and persuasive advocate for both federal and provincial employers at all stages of the litigation process, whether before an administrative tribunal, in grievance arbitration, or in civil litigation. Kelsey regularly represents employers before the Canada Industrial Relations Board, the Ontario Labour Relations Board, the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal and has appeared before all levels of Court in Ontario.

Kelsey also regularly presents workshops and seminars on various labour and employment law topics for managers, supervisors and human resources professionals.
Regardless of the forum or issue at hand, Kelsey seeks the most effective and efficient way to help his clients overcome the legal obstacles that get in the way of business.
