Mike joined Crawford Chondon & Partners LLP as an associate lawyer following his call to the Bar of Ontario in 2010.   Between 2011 and 2012, Mike spent eight months on secondment to the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (“LCBO”) where he worked as one of two in-house counsel specializing in labour and employment law.  Mike became a partner in January, 2018.

Mike advises employers on a wide array of legal matters including: collective bargaining, interpretation and application of collective agreements, employee discipline and termination of employment, human rights, workplace violence and harassment, responding to union certification applications and related employer applications, construction industry matters arising under the Labour Relations Act, and complaints under the Employment Standards Act, 2000

When matters progress beyond providing strategic and proactive advice, Mike successfully advocates for employers as at the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, the Ontario Labour Relations Board, private labour arbitration boards, the Ontario Grievance Settlement Board, Ontario Superior Court of Justice, and the Ontario Court of Justice. 

Mike has provided sophisticated counsel to numerous private sector clients, as well as institutional and public sector clients including: municipalities, social service providers, health care providers and facilities, and Crown corporations.  During his secondment to the LCBO, Mike was actively engaged in grievance arbitration before the Ontario Grievance Settlement Board and in mediations opposite a strong provincial union.
When Mike is not directly working with clients, you can find him blogging, podcasting, overseeing the CCPartners LLP student program, and planning his next trip to Green Bay to cheer on his beloved Packers.
