Ottawa Business Journal - HR Update - - Front Page -

Nel­li­gan O’Brien Payne is pleased to once again be a spon­sor of the 2009 Em­ploy­ees Choice Awards pre­sented by the Ottawa Busi­ness Jour­nal and Tal­ent Map, with the sup­port of the Hu­man Re­sources Pro­fes­sion­als As­so­ci­a­tion. We would also like to con­grat­u­late the fol­low­ing win­ners: bitHeads, Brook­street Ho­tel Cor­po­ra­tion, Chip­works Inc., Clas­sic Care Phar­macy, Collins Bar­row Ottawa LLP, Ernst & Young LLP, Hol­i­day Inn Ho­tel & Suites Ottawa Kanata, McMil­lan, Med­i­cal Coun­cil of Canada, and Pro­tus.

Our fi rm orig­i­nated over 40 years ago and has prac­tised a tra­di­tion of ex­cel­lence, earn­ing the re­spect of its clients, the com­mu­nity and the le­gal pro­fes­sion. With a grow­ing firm of 47 lawyers, Nel­li­gan O’Brien Payne moved last fall to a larger of­fice space at 50 O’Con­nor Street in Ottawa. The fi rm also has offi ces in Kingston, Van­kleek Hill and Alexan­dria.

At Nel­li­gan O’Brien Payne each lawyer se­lects spe­cific ar­eas of law in which to prac­tise. This prac­tice “ fo­cus” al­lows in­di­vid­ual lawyers to keep up to date on the most cur­rent leg­isla­tive changes and case law, and they can fo­cus their pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment on those ar­eas as well. Our fi rm pro­vides le­gal ser­vices in a broad range of ar­eas – from em­ploy­ment law, busi­ness law and in­tel­lec­tual prop­erty, to real es­tate, fam­ily law and es­tate plan­ning and ad­min­is­tra­tion, to name a few.

Our Em­ploy­ment Law group is one of the largest prac­tice ar­eas at the fi rm. This group has ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence in all facets of em­ploy­ment law in both the pri­vate and pub­lic sec­tors, rep­re­sent­ing both em­ployee and em­ployer clients.

The lawyers in our Em­ploy­ment Law Group bring a depth of ex­pe­ri­ence and unique ex­per­tise to ev­ery sit­u­a­tion. They know that em­ploy­ment prob­lems re­quire prompt at­ten­tion and are best re­solved with sen­si­ble and sen­si­tive so­lu­tions.

Our rep­u­ta­tion is based on more than a tech­ni­cal mas­tery of the law. Whether through ne­go­ti­a­tion or rep­re­sen­ta­tion be­fore Courts and tribunals, our em­ploy­ment law lawyers draw on their own ex­pe­ri­ence and the ex­pe­ri­ence of their col­leagues to cre­ate so­lu­tions that are cost-ef­fec­tive and prac­ti­cal.

Our Em­ploy­ment Law Prac­tice Group as­sists clients at ev­ery stage of the em­ploy­ment re­la­tion­ship in­clud­ing – re­cruit­ment and hir­ing, con­tracts, dis­missal and lay­off, em­ploy­ment stan­dards, dis­crim­i­na­tion & ha­rass­ment is­sues, hu­man re­source poli­cies, job clas­si­fi­ca­tions, re­tire­ment com­pen­sa­tion ar­range­ments and more. We also of­fer em­ploy­ment law ser­vices in both of­fi­cial lan­guages. Nel­li­gan O’Brien Payne is very ac­tive in pro­vid­ing ed­u­ca­tional ses­sions to clients and other groups. Our lawyers and con­sul­tants write news­let­ters on var­i­ous ar­eas of law and keep our clients upto-date on new leg­isla­tive changes that may af­fect their or­ga­ni­za­tion. Feel free to visit our web­site at www. nel­li­gan. ca to ex­plore the wide va­ri­ety of ar­ti­cles, news­let­ters and other pub­li­ca­tions.
