Allison is has tremendous legal talent. She is always responsive and honest when handling my company's legal matters. She is great at, not only fixing problems but at helping us avert employment problems. She does this by coaching us in best practices and common employment law pitfalls ahead of time.
I have worked with Allison as a colleague in two separate businesses and have also retained her legal services for several contract-related matters. Allison provides smart and thorough representation for her clients. In negotiations she is extremely personable and operates with a high degree of integrity. This results in her consistently finding solutions that satisfy all parties. I would strongly recommend Allison for employers and employees (especially in the digital sector) seeking legal expertise.
Seeds of Hope Foundation had the pleasure of working with Karimjee Greene. We are a charity providing community learning centres and transitional housing.

Right from the start, Kumail Karimjee has impressed DeafBlind Ontario Services with his efficient, professional manner - an approach that inspired the confidence that we were doing the right thing. As a non-profit organization with several hundred employees at multiple sites across Ontario, we have needed legal opinions and representation on a wide variety of employment related issues. Specifically, Kumail has assisted us with compliance with the Bill 168 amendments of the Occupational Health and Safety Act dealing with workplace violence and harassment; managing our training program in compliance with the Employment Standards Act and complying with public sector compensation restraint legislation.
In 2008, Kumail assisted us with a significant re-organization of our workforce which affected approximately 15% of our employees. Kumail’s recommended strategy, communications advice and contract documents led us through a very positive change for DBOS without even a single dispute with the employees affected. By partnering with Kumail, we have been able to consistently act proactively, maintain positive employee relations and thereby minimize our exposure to liability.
