About Chris Peddigrew

After more than 10 years working with a large Atlantic regional law firm, Chris became a founding partner of Wadden Peddigrew. While Chris brings the same work ethic and commitment to Wadden Peddigrew Law, he enjoys the increased opportunities to work more closely with clients to provide them with the type of value and efficiencies that come with a smaller firm. Chris enjoys working collaboratively with clients and understands the importance of open and regular communication to ensure that clients understand their file and are kept informed as matters progress.

While Chris’ main area of practice is labour and employment law, he also practices extensively in the areas of personal injury, business law, residential and commercial real estate transactions, and general litigation. Chris regularly appears before the Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador as well as numerous Administrative Tribunals.

Chris is also Vice-Chair of the Newfoundland and Labrador Labour Relations Board, an active Labour Arbitrator on the Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Government Roster of Arbitrators, as well as a Mediator assisting parties to employ Alternative Dispute Resolution to help resolve workplace disputes efficiently and cooperatively.

Outside of work, Chris is a volunteer with the St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog Program, Chair of the Board of Directors of the St. Patrick’s Mercy Home Foundation, and a member of the Board of Directors of Choices for Youth.
