Andy’s practice spans labour, employment and professional regulation law.

In his labour and employment practice, Andy represents trade union and individual employee clients at arbitrations, before various administrative tribunals, and in the courts. In his professional regulation practice, Andy represents both professional bodies and individual professionals facing discipline. He enjoys presenting on matters of interest in both of these areas.

He is also a member of the Law Society of Prince Edward Island, and his practice spans both provinces.
