We are savvy, strategic, innovative and client-centred. We offer the full array of dispute resolution services from negotiation and mediation to arbitration and litigation.
From a “work law” heritage, we have honed unique negotiation skills to creatively and thoughtfully assist people in resolving problems that range from complex high-level conflicts and intricate cases to every day business issues.
We have earned our reputation as active listeners, creative thinkers, problem-solvers and trusted advocates.
We are known for playing to our strengths and, as a result, are among a select group of boutique and specialty Canadian law firms profiled in Punching Above Weight, published in Lexpert April/May 2017. Also, we are recognized as one of Canada’s top five employee-side Labour and Employment firms in Canadian Lawyer magazine, January 2018 and again in Canadian Lawyer InHouse magazine, May/June 2018 and January/February 2019.
Privately-held enterprises, community groups, professional associations, and organized labour trust us to help them manage and resolve issues related to people and processes.
We are a go-to firm for high-stakes risk management planning and, when necessary, take measured responses and appropriate action to manage disputes and protect interests.
We value diversity, and aim to create a safe, welcoming, inclusive, and culturally competent environment for our clients, lawyers, articled clerks, and staff. We are committed to social justice and anti-oppression in our workplace. Because we recognize that anti-oppression and cultural competence require ongoing learning, we have and will continue to engage with local educators to build our competence and awareness.
Client care is at the heart of everything we do. Our commitment to placing the needs of others first and reputation for clear, honest judgment helps those we work with achieve results. It also helps us earn their confidence and trust.
Pink Larkin focuses on “We.” Whatever our title or position, we embrace a culture where clients are clients of the firm rather than an individual.
Ethics are everything. Honesty, respect and civility are part of our hallmark inside and outside the firm.
We are professional. In our demeanour, conduct, work style and results, we strive to lead by example as individuals and as a team.
The wellbeing of others is important to us. We actively participate in and financially support:
- Persons Day – Annual recognition of Persons Day and women leaders
- Symphony Nova Scotia
- Visual arts and artists – Many local artists’ work is displayed at our office.
