Kumail was knowledgeable and kind. He negotiated an extraordinary severance package for me and I definitely highly recommend his services.
As we have worked through restructuring and new employment contracts, we have found that Kumail’s knowledge and adaptability to ensure we were up to date and had robust employment contracts in place was vital. Especially as a nonprofit organization, Kumail was very understanding and accommodating of our needs and expectations, and we have been very well represented by him.

I spoke with several lawyers prior to selecting Kumail and I’m glad that I went with his firm. From the beginning Kumail was the most detailed in his review of my case and persistent in obtaining the best result. Kumail brought a steady hand to the proceedings and brought the experience and professionalism that was critical in achieving a successful settlement.
I highly recommend Kumail Karimjee. I’m so happy and completely satisfied. Kumail and his staff are highly talented and experienced, they fought for my rights and also educated me about my rights during the process.
Seeds of Hope Foundation had the pleasure of working with Kumail Karimjee. We are a charity providing community learning centres and transitional housing. We found that Kumail quickly developed an understanding of how our charity works and what we do. He then translated that understanding into a successful court application which secured the outcome we wanted.
David Walsh, President, Carrot Common and Co-Founder, Seeds of Hope Foundation
Kumail Karimjee and his firm are top shelf. Kumail is extremely knowledgeable and professional. He listened to my concerns and knew the subject matter very thoroughly. His client first attitude made me comfortable with the experience, expense and how he handled my situation. Kumail delivered the projected result and I have no hesitation in recommending him and his firm.
