“He (Howard) is one of the brightest lawyers in the country, if not THE brightest”
Ontario Premier – Doug Ford
“I just watched a couple of interview Q&A hits you did with Heather Hiscox on CBC. Thank you for assisting those with legitimate employment issues in this troubling time. Extraordinary circumstances such as we find ourselves in often leave the vulnerable in an even greater state of vulnerability and risk-and you have given some comfort in letting people know they have rights. I respect your comments will also put some employers on notice that they too have obligations.
I spend much of my day, and indeed my career, giving voice to those who have none, so I like to give credit where it is due. I hope this short note provides a small credit that a simple ‘thank you’ often brings.”
Senate DAVID WELLS, Senate OF CANADA – AL
“I worked with Howard Levitt at Levitt Sheikh, never having needed to engage employment lawyers on my behalf before. He was both very professional and represented my interests extremely well. He worked with me throughout what is always an unsettling situation and gave me the comfort that I was being represented by one of the best employment legal minds in Canada. He was easy to reach during the process and I found having ready access to my legal team brought peace of mind. I found him aggressive on my behalf when needed and open to compromise when warranted. He knows the law. I am pleased with the outcome and highly recommend him, although I personally hope to never require his services in the future! :)”
“Howard Levitt is considered the top employment law negotiator and litigator for good reason. He has an incredibly comprehensive understanding of Canadian and American law that saves time and money. He is shrewd, highly experienced and well-respected. We leveraged all of that and got an excellent result swiftly, thanks to Mr. Levitt’s laser focus on solving the problems. He doesn’t have time to draw out his cases. He pounced on the problems and negotiated them away.”
“ I would highly recommend Levitt Sheikh. Howard Levitt and his team are knowledgeable, strategic, tenacious and efficient. An absolute pleasure to deal with.”
