By AdvocateDaily.com Staff
The Canadian HR Awards recently named Williams HR Law as Labour and Employment Law Boutique of the Year — an accolade which Markham, Ont.-based employment lawyer Laura Williams says is a reflection of her team's hard work and commitment to excellence.
“I think this award recognizes the importance of delivering legal services in an innovative way, with clients’ long-term business interests in mind,” she tells AdvocateDaily.com. “I couldn’t be more excited for our team.”
Canadian HR professionals and teams were invited to nominate themselves, their company, team or peers to recognize those who have made outstanding contributions to the Canadian HR space. Following the nomination process, finalists for each category were chosen and required to submit supporting documentation in order to become a finalist.
Winners were then selected by a jury of HR professionals and academics, and the awards were presented at a black-tie gala hosted by HRD Canada Magazine in partnership with Ultimate Software.
Williams, who founded Williams HR Law on the core belief that a proactive approach to labour and employment law helps organizations mitigate risk and avoid costly legal issues before they arise, says the firm is proud to be recognized, especially considering the strong competitors in the category.
“Being recognized as Labour and Employment Law Boutique of the Year by the Canadian HR Awards is a reflection of our amazing team's incredibly hard work. Our lawyers and support staff go above and beyond every day to help our clients address labour and employment law challenges and leverage opportunities for growth and success," Williams says.
"The firm’s success is a direct reflection of their unwavering commitment to excellence,” she adds.
