Koskie Glavin Gordon is pleased to announce that Carol Whittome has joined the firm as an associate specializing in Labour Law and Human Rights. Carol has a wealth of experience representing workers and unions. She worked as an associate at Koskie Glavin Gordon’s predecessor firm from 2007 to 2012, during which time she played an important role in a number of high profile cases, including an application to the Superintendent of Pensions, appealed to the BC Supreme Court, which resulted in a multi-million dollar award. After briefly working at another leading law firm, Carol has returned to Koskie Glavin Gordon to continue her work in her chosen field.
“We are thrilled that Carol is rejoining our firm,” said Partner Tony Glavin. “She is a great lawyer, and her dozens of plants have really improved the air quality in our office.”
In addition to interests in labour, human rights, privacy and constitutional law, Carol’s practice has a particular focus on legal research, and she is currently serving as Secretary on the Executive Board of the Canadian Bar Association’s Legal Research Section. She is also passionate about empowering workers and union representatives through legal education, and has provided a variety of seminars and courses to union clients.
