Geoff Dunlop articled at the firm’s Ottawa office before joining the Kingston office as an Associate in 2020. He practices in the areas of labour, employment, administrative law and disability benefits. He advises clients regarding wrongful dismissal, severance packages, discrimination, and disability claims. He also represents unions and their members in grievance arbitrations and before labour boards.
Prior to law school, Geoff worked on farms, construction sites, and then for the Ontario Disability Support Program, and he believes strongly that working people in all sectors deserve high quality advocacy. He pursued his passion for advocacy at law school, where he competed in the Hicks Morley moot in first year, before winning the Mathews Dinsdale National Labour Arbitration Competition in his second year, and coaching the team in his third year. He also conducted in-depth research on the use of psychometric and neuroscientific testing in legal proceedings.
