bakerlaw is a recognized leader in disability and human rights law.

We have developed extensive experience representing non-profit organizations, employees, patients, students and parents from a wide range of social, economic and ethnic backgrounds. Whether you need assistance with a human rights law, employment law, education law or sexual harassment matter, we can help! With lawyers based in Toronto, Ottawa and London, we offer a broad range of litigation services. We advocate for our clients inside and outside the courtroom including in hearings, mediations, negotiations, and through government relations and research work.

During COVID-19, the courts continue to deal with legal matters including urgent ones. We are well equipped to address employment, disability accommodation, education and long-term care issues whether COVID related or not. We have recently represented a client at the Human Rights Tribunal to secure greater access to her family caregiver so that she could have her psychosocial needs met. Shortly after our client passed away, the Provincial policies regarding long-term care home residents’ access to their caregivers were expanded. If you or someone you know requires assistance with a legal matter, get in touch to see if we can help.
