Shivani Chopra is an experienced lawyer in our Toronto office, who has spent a decade in courts tenaciously representing clients on labour and employment matters. Her approach has always been to fiercely advocate for her clients but take a cost-effective and collaborative approach when in their best interest.
In her employment law practice, Shivani frequently advises employers on a wide-variety of matters, including: accommodation issues, occupational health and safety, performance management, termination, human rights and wrongful dismissal claims.
On the labour side of things, Shivani assists clients with certification applications, unfair labour practice complaints, and grievance hearings.
Shivani has a Master of Laws (LL.M) from Dalhousie University, Halifax, and was called to the New Brunswick Bar in January 2008, and the Bar Council of India in 2003.
Over the years, Shivani has acquired a deep understanding of the insurance industry and is, therefore, frequently also retained by insurers to assist them with regulatory and compliance matters.
Shivani remains licensed to practice law in India and, given her ties to India and its legal system, frequently acts as a conduit for Indian law firms and corporations to provide them with timely, cost-effective and high caliber legal services on a wide variety of matters.
