Howard Levitt Employment lawyer 2

In this episode of Of Counsel we bring you Howard Levitt. From an early age, Howard’s gift of disruption set him on a course to become one of Canada’s leading employment lawyers.

In a recent Globe and Mail profile of him, hiring Howard was compared to bringing a bazooka to a gun fight. He is someone who strikes fear in the heart of his opponents. His reputation as a fierce defender of his clients’ interest has brought him considerable success over the year. Howard’s routinely asked to comment upon breaking employment law issues in national media, a frequent contributor to the National Post, and host a weekly talk show on Newstalk 1010 CFRB.

Howard acts for some of Canada’s largest corporation, leading negotiations on major collective bargaining agreements, speaking at employment law conferences across Canada, and being present any time a major employment issue arises in Provincial or Federal legislation. Join us as Howard discusses not only the issues surrounding employment law, but also how he got to where he is today.
