Barry Kwasniewski joined Carters in 2008, becoming a partner in 2014, to practice in the areas of employment law, charity related litigation, and risk management. Called to the Ontario Bar in 1990, and after practicing for many years as a litigation lawyer in Ottawa, Barry's focus is now on providing advice to charities and not-for-profits with respect to their employment and legal risk management issues.
