We retained Watershed as our labour and employment law counsel in January 2010. Michael Fitzgibbon is the most professional, personable, and dedicated labour lawyer we have ever had representing our company over the last twenty plus years. Michael’s quick responses to e-mails and phone calls both day and night, keep the lines of communication flowing whenever we need information the most. By looking ahead two or three steps and giving us excellent advice Watershed has given us the information we need to make a well informed decision each and every time. Michael’s great work ethic is always evident as he helps our company with diverse labour issues. With over ninety employees in our company, issues can arise quickly and Michael is always accessible which puts our minds at ease. Michael’s proactive approach helps us plan ahead, put policies in place as our landscape changes and avoid potential future issues. Overall Watershed has turned potentially stressful situations, into manageable experiences and it is a pleasure having them on our side.
