Sultan Lawyers is a top tier employment law firm, focused on all major aspects of workplace relations including workplace immigration law. We help both employers and employees to plan proactively and mitigate risk, and to resolve disputes where issues escalate to the point where legal intervention is needed.
We have built our practice on a strong foundation of five core values that permeate everything we do.
We are determined to be the best at what we do, and to work hard to ensure our clients benefit from our perseverance. We strive to think outside the box and find innovative solutions to the most challenging issues in employment law. We take on complex cases that other employment law firms may not have the experience to address, and relish the opportunity to ensure that our clients succeed.
The labour market, and the laws that govern it, are constantly changing. We are dedicated to keeping up to date on all major developments and remaining ahead of the curve on the issues that matter most to our clients. Our approach allows us to always position our clients at an advantage.
We believe delivering excellent results means professionalism, and respect, both to our clients and to opposing counsel. Clients know that we do not pursue matters with ego and bravado but instead with a refined confidence for which we have developed an outstanding reputation.
We know our clients have fundamental rights and interests to protect and that they rely on counsel with resolve. It is for this reason that we are driven by grit and a sheer determination to work harder, faster and more effectively than others to meet the challenges.
We bring together big law experience with a small firm approach to client relations. Our team brings years of experience from Bay Street to our boutique practice. We take pride in our client-focused approach. We do not work on a volume basis, and only take on as many files as we can devote our fullest attention to.
At Sultan Lawyers, our team regularly helps employees navigate the legal aspects of their employment relationship. We provide guidance for employees on issues including:
