Our Firm

SPECIALISED EXPERTISE AND SUPPORT WITH INNOVATIVE LEGAL STRATEGIES

Cavalluzzo lawyers are distinguished by their commitment to providing excellent legal advice and representation and their dedication to advancing equality and social justice. Since 1983, our firm has been advocating on behalf of working people and equity-seeking groups and individuals in Ontario, across Canada and internationally.

Our practice is varied – encompassing labour, public, pension, administrative, Charter, health, education, employment law and class actions, as well as professional regulation, inquiries and inquests – but our dedication to superior advocacy is constant. We represent trade unions, professionals and professional associations, non-unionized employees, multi-employer pension and benefit plans, and other organizations and individuals, in both the public and private sector, assisting them with day-to-day legal problems as well as long-term legal and policy strategies.

We are client-focused and professional. We provide prompt and clear advice and representation. We work to make complex issues understandable and try to ensure that simple matters stay that way. We always discuss with clients in advance the costs associated with large and small projects.

We believe strongly in promoting solidarity and raising awareness of issues affecting the rights of women, persons of diverse racial, cultural, religious, and ethnic backgrounds, persons with disabilities and those with different political views and all sexual orientations and gender identities.

Because we are passionate about what we do, we are fierce and innovative advocates. Our lawyers have won precedent-setting cases, including at the Supreme Court of Canada, and promoted progressive legislative change. Whatever challenge our clients are facing, we are ready to work collaboratively and creatively to solve it.
