About Us

Barteaux Labour and Employment Lawyers Inc. is a boutique law firm specializing in labour, employment, and immigration law. We are known for achieving successful outcomes in negotiated settlements, arbitration, litigation and collective bargaining and developing innovative strategies for bringing international talent to Canada quickly.

Founded in 2015, Immigration law was added as a core practice area in 2021. We represent private-sector and public-sector employers across a diverse range of sectors including education, fishing, construction, technology, transportation, natural resources, entertainment, and not-for-profit. We focus on providing strategic and timely advice and solutions to our clients for their workplace legal needs so they can focus on running their businesses.

Our firm is regularly selected as one of Canada’s Top Ten Labour and Employment Boutiques (Canadian Lawyer Magazine). Both our Founder and Principal, Nancy Barteaux, Q.C., and our Immigration Law Practice Leader, Andrea Baldwin, are recognized in their respective areas and are listed by lawyer ranking services such as Who's Who Legal (as National and Global Leaders) and in Best Lawyers, based upon feedback from clients and peer review.

Representing Atlantic Canada in the Employment Law Alliance (ELA) -- a global network of the world's top labour, employment, and immigration lawyers -- our firm is called upon regularly to provide HR legal solutions to clients around the world.
