Fred Wynne
Lawyer

I give you a voice when you need to be heard.

I am an advocate and a tenacious problem solver who uses legal tools including mediation, litigation, and negotiation to obtain my clients’ goals. I practise in all areas of employment law and have particular experience with disability accommodation, human rights discrimination, wrongful termination, privacy invasion, non-competition and non-solicitation contract issues, and WorkSafeBC compensation and occupational health and safety.

I litigate cases before all levels of court in BC as well as before administrative tribunals such as the BC Human Rights Tribunal, the Employment Standards Tribunal and the Workers Compensation Appeal Tribunal. However, I’m also committed to resolving lawsuits without going to court whenever possible, and extensively practice mediation.

Originally from a small community in the interior, I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Calgary and then attended law school at the University of Alberta in Edmonton. I returned to BC for articles and practice, beginning my career with a mid-sized Fraser Valley firm focusing on personal injury, general civil litigation and employment law. I have practised exclusively in the areas of employment and human rights since my call to the bar in 2008, spending three years with a Vancouver employment law boutique before joining HHBG Lawyers  in 2012.

Outside of the office I play rugby with Kats RFC, but I suffer more injuries chasing my two young sons Scott and Theo.
