Christopher Neufeld: Your Lawyer for Termination & Severance Pay

Neufeld Legal PC: - 403-400-4092 (Alberta) - 905-616-8864 (Ontario)

With over 20 years of legal experience in corporate business law and commercial litigation, I undertook an extensive review of termination and severance pay packages and the court precedent (case law) that shapes judicial interpretation of those central employment laws. And what I discovered was the process for dealing with terminated employees, especially employees in large companies, including mining and petroleum companies, was all too often seriously flawed. Core fundamentals were not being appropriately addressed and thus a series of powerful legal strategies was not being implemented on behalf of those long-serving mining employees who were impacted by these major oversights.

By taking a fresh look at termination and severance pay, as opposed to relying upon the standard practices that are well known to large mining employers, new strategies were developed that could challenge these large mining operations and their high-priced lawyers. And with this new strategy, we can optimize employee demands by placing significant pressure on these large Canadian mine owners and use that leverage to negotiate to the employee's advantage.

Drawing upon my early years in New York City as a corporate securities attorney on Wall Street, and than continuing to develop and hone my legal skills and expertise in Ontario and Alberta, focusing on corporate-commercial matters, I have taken this distinct experience and knowledge, and sought to develop an innovative approach to termination and severance pay packages. And having identified a unique approach to advancing a former mining employee's demand for increased compensation, challenging large corporate employers has become a central focus of my legal practice.
