Committed to the Trade Union movement

I would highly recommend the lawyers from Watson Labour Lawyers! Not only are they professional, they are true trade unionists committed to the Trade Union movement. Their passion and understanding helps them frame their legal argument in a way that is persuasive to arbitrators, and even opposing counsel. To date, I have not seen this power of persuasion fail.

One of the most dynamic speakers and educators in the world of labour law, education and advocacy.

The only thing that outweighs Cindy's skill, conviction and passion in delivering the highest standard of representation for her clients - is her integrity. She is without doubt, one of the most dynamic speakers and educators in the world of labour law, education and advocacy. Energized and driven by personal and professional experience; and, most importantly backed by years of education, knowledge and experience, Cindy consistently gives 110%.
