Dianne Rideout & Michelle McKinnon Profiled in Canadian Lawyer


Cassels partners Dianne Rideout and Michelle McKinnon have been profiled in Canadian Lawyer: “New Additions to Cassels’ Employment Law Practice Have Different Background, But Share Same Goals.”

Writes Zena Olijnyk: “The two new additions to the employment and labour group at Cassels Brock & Blackwell in Vancouver – Dianne Rideout and Michelle McKinnon – come from vastly different backgrounds, but both share a love for the work they do.”

The article goes on to look at how Dianne and Michelle came to be employment lawyers and the challenges their clients are currently facing, including hybrid and remote work, pay transparency, and artificial intelligence.

Both Dianne and Michelle focus on the employer side of employment and labour, working with private employers and corporations, often those starting businesses in Canada:  “We’ve done a lot of work with those types of corporations, helping them sort of get established concerning the employment policies, practices, and procedures that they require for their business and their employees here in Canada.”
