Steven G. Bosnick is a partner at the firm and was called to the bar in 2002 after articling with Jesin Watson & McCreary (as the firm was then known). He attended law school at the University of Toronto and has a Master of Arts degree in Philosophy from the University of Guelph and a Bachelor of Mathematics degree from the University of Waterloo in Pure Mathematics and Computer Science.

In the summer of 1999 Steven worked as an intern with the International Labour Office in Geneva, Switzerland, working with the International Program for the Elimination of Child Labour. Steven's work in the International Labour Office afforded him the opportunity to observe the work of the legislative body of the International Labour Organization (the International Labour Conference) while it debated and adopted the Worst Forms of Child Labour Convention, 1999 (No. 182).

While studying for his Master of Arts degree, Steven was a union steward in the teaching assistants and sessional lecturers union at the University of Guelph (CUPE Loc. 3913). While studying at law school Steven volunteered with the Advocates for Injured Workers legal clinic assisting low-income workers who were injured on-the-job with their Workplace Safety and Insurance Board claims.

Steven's practice includes frequent appearances before the Ontario Labour Relations Board, before labour arbitrators, and before the Courts. Most of Steven's practice is divided between labour arbitrations for trade unions, and representation of or appearances at professional regulation tribunals.
