Greetings from Canada's capital! I'm based in Hicks Morley's Ottawa office, and practice in all areas of labour and employment law, including privacy and information issues. Being in Ottawa gives me the opportunity to work in both of our official languages, plus I can avoid judo throws by my southerly colleagues, tripping over their surf magazine collections, or getting drawn into rowdy drinking songs (well, that can still happen on occasion, unfortunately for anyone within earshot). I'm thrilled to be officially joining the blogosphere! View all posts by George Vuicic
