Black Gropper is a progressive labour and employment law firm, located in downtown Vancouver.
Black Gropper was founded in 1999 by a group of partners and associates of the former Vancouver law firm, McTaggart Ellis, which had represented trade unions (local, national and international), labour organizations, teachers and other employees for over 50 years. We have a long standing and varied clientele of which we are extremely proud, and we continue to grow and develop new client relationships.
We believe that our success is rooted in our team of dedicated professionals who enjoy the practice of labour and employment law. We also credit our success to the collaborative, innovative and problem solving approach that we use to address our client's needs in a cost efficient and effective manner.
