Gary Caroline and Joanna Gislason came recommended from trusted media gurus and friends while I languished in an Egyptian prison on the other side of the globe. I trusted their approach from day one as we established a unique transatlantic method of communication to fight the bogus terrorism charges I faced in Egypt, and the crippling bureaucracy of Mr. Harper’s government. Using their extraordinary contacts… their expertise in the areas of human rights and international affairs came as a lifeline as we battled for my exoneration…
Caroline Law has a wealth and depth knowledge in the areas of advocacy and the Canadian business world. They have been a great help in providing access to Canadian investors. They have an excellent team of lawyers who produced a thorough review of the Democratic Republic of Congo’s mining code and a detailed proposal for an anti-corruption strategy for the DRC Government.
I have worked and collaborated on matters with Gary for many years. Gary provides practical, common-sense advice (in times of both crisis and opportunity) when faced with the difficult intersection of law and complex geopolitics. A ‘voice of reason’, Gary is an expert at juggling and managing complexity in circumstances fraught with legal, commercial and ‘people’ challenges.
Gary Caroline and Joanna Gislason are the lawyers you need to overcome injustice. More than simply brilliant lawyers, they will fight for you with fearlessness, heart and vision. I have seen first-hand the result – legal systems forced open to the idea of protecting the human rights of those outside the power elite.
It has been a delight to work with Caroline Law. The attention I have received has been a refreshing change from the routine, paper and email based form conversations. Gary Caroline has gone out of his way to make sure the issues are clearly explained, written and dealt with. I have solved many of my employee issues, business questions and finalizing purchase and sale contracts with Gary’s help. Of particular importance to me was the quick and timeliness of responses which I attribute to personal attention to their clients. Their knowledge and attention to detail is outstanding. They are focused and dedicated to achieving the best results.
It’s been an honour and pleasure to work and advocate with Gary on a number of high-level international files. His highly effective global advocacy is grounded in his understanding of complex geopolitical issues and a principled commitment to justice. I’m privileged to have been able to work with and learn from him.
Caroline Law is a highly competent legal firm with a strong commitment to social justice. I am so grateful for Gary and Joanna’s help in my battle to force the Federal Government to give regular Canadians a stronger voice in the national oil pipeline approval process.
I’ve had the pleasure and privilege of working with Gary and Joanna for 10 plus years. Their knowledge and professionalism has shaped me as a Union Leader. I am happy to call them my legal counsel as well as my friends!
I asked Gary and Joanna to assist our union as we looked for ways to improve our union’s servicing model and make recommendations on how we could better serve the needs of our members. Their advice and understanding of the needs of our organization has been key in making our transition successful.
This shout out goes to the law firm of Caroline Law. Can’t thank you enough for all that your law firm has done for me and my colleagues. The care and compassion you all have demonstrated towards us has been above and beyond. Thank you.
Joanna is an invaluable asset to any organization looking for a litigator, a trainer or wise counsel to manage complex human rights issues. I trust her judgment and appreciate the high quality legal work she has done for our union.
