Jim Wu - Lawyer, Forte Workplace Law

Jim Wu Jim is an employment lawyer and has practiced exclusively in this area since 2018, first in his own solo employment law practice and with Forte Law since 2019. Jim loves going to court to give his clients a voice and has run as many as five trials in a single year. He never backs down from challenges, and one of his trials ran for more than a week with dozens of witnesses.

Before law school, Jim worked an Employment Insurance adjudicator and made decisions on 1000’s of EI claims. This experience has been incredibly valuable to him in advising clients about Employment Insurance matters and appeals, and in representing his clients before courts and administrative tribunals. Once you sit in the decision-maker’s chair, you look at everything differently.
