Howard Employment Law is pleased to announce it has formed a strategic alliance with Ascent Employment Law.

Ascent is an 8-member workplace law boutique firm based in Vancouver and Kelowna. It recently announced a merger with labour law (i.e. union sector) boutique Ukrainetz Law, based in Vernon.

Under the first phase of the arrangement, HEL will be collaborating with Ascent on marketing and professional development activities, as well as on selected files where our combined resources and expertise will benefit our clients.

The arrangement with HEL adds senior employment counsel Geoffrey Howard and his associate Sebastian Chern, along with their significant international, national and regional employer client base, to Ascent’s business.

HEL clients shortly will be able to access Ascent resources including:

  1. Participation in “Employer Huddles”: practical webinars which address key topics facing employers. Please let us know if you would like to be added to the email list for these webinars;
  2. Ascent articles and blog posts on employment topics;
  3. A list of on-line resources, including government websites, which offer information and forms to employees and employers.

The two firms look forward to enhancing each other’s service offerings and depth of expertise.
