Christine Davies is a labour lawyer and civil litigator in our Toronto office. She is known for her tenacious commitment to getting clients the best possible result.
A skilled litigator who started her career as a research lawyer, Christine now has one of the broadest practices at the firm. She is equally comfortable before labour arbitrators and administrative tribunals as she is before the civil courts.
Christine’s labour practice includes representing unions and their members in grievance arbitration and in proceedings before the Ontario Labour Relations Board. She also advises and represents unions in matters pertaining to human rights law and Workplace Safety and Insurance Board claims.
As a civil litigator, Christine has acted in all manner of civil disputes for individuals, trade unions and not-for-profit housing co-operatives. Her litigation practice focuses primarily on class actions, defending lawyers in solicitor’s negligence actions as a LawPRO “preferred counsel”, human rights applications, wrongful and constructive dismissal actions, and long-term disability claims.
Whatever the legal issue, Christine’s clients trust her strategic insights and attention to detail, and other lawyers regularly turn to her for advice in their own cases.
Christine is a member of the Ontario Bar Association, the Advocates Society, and the Canadian Association of Labour Lawyers.
