Education
ADMITTED TO THE BAR:
  • University of Manitoba (J.D., 2013)

Peter is passionate about his work in the Labour & Employment Law field.  He is regularly sought after by employers and human resource professionals for his litigation expertise as well as his counsel on day-to-day human resource matters.

Peter’s advocacy experience includes acting as the lead negotiator for management in collective bargaining, defending wrongful dismissal lawsuits, and advising clients operating in both non-unionized and unionized workplaces dealing with grievances and arbitrations under collective agreements.  He has represented clients involving the Manitoba Labour Board, Canada Industrial Relations Board, Manitoba Employment Standards, Manitoba Human Rights Commission, The Human Rights Code, Canada Labour Code, and has appeared before all levels of the Court of Manitoba and the Federal Court of Canada.

Peter has grown his practice to include representing clients involved in First Nations’ government election appeals.  Recently, he acted on behalf of the Pine Creek First Nation’s Chief and Council members successfully defending against a court application seeking to set aside the results of Pine Creek’s 2021 election.

As an active participant at Taylor McCaffrey, Peter sits on the firm’s Technology Committee and the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee.  He also very much enjoys being a mentor (formally and informally) to many of the firm’s newer lawyers.  In the community, Peter serves on the Audit Committee of CPHR Manitoba and, since 2014, the board of Community Respite Services Inc.
