Richard Press practices with the Employment Group and focuses both on advocacy and strategic planning with respect to employment and labour matters, as well as related administrative tribunal work, such as human rights, health and safety, workers compensation and employment standards.

As an advocate, Richard has appeared before provincially and federally appointed arbitrators, the British Columbia courts, the provincial and federal labour boards, and various tribunals.

He is a strong proponent of preventative legal measures. He advises clients in that regard on employment and consultant agreements, employee policies and procedures (governing, among other matters, overtime compensation, discrimination, bullying and harassment, internet and social media, alcohol and drug use, and health and safety), proprietary asset and confidential information protection, compensation and benefit packages, and collective bargaining.
