About Us

Rae Christen Jeffries LLP provides advice and representation to employers in all aspects of federal and provincial labour and employment law. We provide practical, strategic advice that is acutely focused on achieving our clients’ goals, and favour a frank, precise and civil style of advocacy.

Our approach is to work with each client to develop a thorough understanding of their business and unique workplace needs. Our shared commitment to providing consistently excellent service has enabled us to develop many long-term relationships with employers who value our lawyers’ deep understanding of their workplace. We work tirelessly to anticipate the issues that our clients will face and to keep them informed of relevant legal and public policy developments.

We deliver our professional services in a direct, easy-to-understand manner and work with our clients to adapt to changes in the law. We understand that the modern workplace is dynamic and provide advice that is in keeping with our evolving society.

Student Programs

Our summer and articling students work closely with our partners and associates on a wide variety of matters, and learn about all areas of labour and employment law through practical experience. You will take on challenging research from day one, have meaningful interaction with our clients, contribute to the litigation strategy in significant cases, and observe hearings of all types.

We have a formal mentorship program, but our philosophy is that each of our lawyers is responsible for helping our students to contribute positively to the firm and to develop the skills that they will need to enjoy a successful and rewarding legal career.

Our students’ wages and benefits are comparable to those at large Toronto law firms.
