Harris & Company LLP was officially formed in 1992 when a group of employment and labour lawyers decided to leave their full-service firm to create a legal boutique which would allow them to focus solely on employment and labour law. We suspected back then what we now know: that we can serve our clients better if every lawyer in the firm immersed themselves in this area of law and studied the various business environments in which that legal advice was needed. As a result, our firm has become one of the largest and most recognized employment and labour law firms in Western Canada. As a testament to the legal talent we have been able to develop, past Harris lawyers have gone on to become arbitrators, tribunal members, and Provincial and Supreme Court judges. Many of our senior-most lawyers are now mentoring the next generation of leaders. Over the years we have grown steadily—both organically from within and by hiring laterally to bring the brightest and best practitioners into the firm. To further broaden this depth of experience, in 2014, we merged with Taylor Jordan Chafetz boosting our labour, litigation, and administrative law offerings.
