Over the years, Bram has represented cases which have had a direct influence in making our labour laws more progressive. The most recent took place in early 2016 where Lecker & Associates secured the highest ever compensation for a wrongfully dismissed contractor. What was especially relevant about this case was the fact that it cleared up the fuzzy lines of interpretation that existed between the status of “dependent” and “independent contractors”. Since then, numerous individuals have filed similar class action and wrongful dismissal lawsuits against their employers..

From day one Bram Lecker put me at ease during what was a very stressful time. Matthew Fisher was clear and confident from the outset, never hesitating or waivering for a moment in his belief and certainty on how to handle my situation. He did a truly wonderful job looking after me. Then there was Eslita who was just plain wonderful at keeping me up to date every step of the way. I have been more than satisfied. Especially when I consider that two of the other firms I considered during my research, prior to making my decision to ultimately go with Lecker, did not even want to take on my case. Well done and thank you to a great team.Andrew Jensen
