GARY CAROLINE

One of the founders of The Ofelas Group Inc., Gary Caroline brings to our company thirty years of expertise in labour, employment and human rights law. He has also represented a wide range of clients who find themselves in disputes with governments and governmental agencies as well as elected officials and political parties.

Being represented by Gary means receiving more than just solid judgment and a deep understanding of the law. Clients benefit from Gary’s innovative thinking and pragmatism grounded in his many years of obtaining creative solutions in the labour relations context.

He has been successful in transferring that experience to cases where clients have been wrongly detained by foreign governments. He is proud of the work he did around the release of Mohamed Fahmy from Egypt and Abderrahmane Ghanem from Algeria.

Gary’s lifelong interest in international affairs and human rights work is demonstrated through the leadership training provided with Joanna Gislason for the Rwandan National Women’s Council and his work with Aids Free World in Uganda.

Based on his deep understanding of a client’s right to appropriate consular services, Gary has developed a well earned reputation among governments for his tenacious but respectful advocacy on behalf of clients.
