Denis Mahoney is a labour and employment partner in our St. John’s office and a member of the firm’s Board of Directors. Noted for his solid understanding of the current labour and employment issues employers face, Denis has developed a reputation as a trusted advisor and proactive problem solver.

He provides advice on collective bargaining, drug and alcohol testing, cannabis in the workplace, and occupational health and safety matters, and serves as employer-counsel before administrative proceedings including arbitration, labour relations boards, and human rights.
