TDS Lawyer Scott Hoeppner Named Among Lexpert Rising Stars 2022: Leading Lawyers Under 40 in Canada


published 11/23/2022


Winnipeg, MB: Thompson Dorfman Sweatman LLP is proud to congratulate Scott Hoeppner on being named among Lexpert Rising Stars 2022: Leading Lawyers Under 40 in Canada. This distinction is awarded to lawyers who are identified as leaders in both their legal practice and in their communities. It’s a reflection of Scott’s exceptional dedication and work ethic, and it is especially noteworthy as he is the only lawyer in Manitoba to receive the honour.

Over the past 14 years, Scott has successfully built and maintained a diverse practice in the areas of labour and employment and business law. He has represented a wide range of unique clients—from non-profits and small business to large commercial corporations—before the Manitoba Court of King’s Bench, the Manitoba Labour Board and the Manitoba Human Rights Commission.

"Trust is a big thing," says Scott, whose practice is focused on building relationships. "Clients are coming to you with a problem, and it’s often an issue that they’ve never dealt with before. They’ve placed their trust in you to address their immediate needs and build a path forward."

This responsibility is one that Scott takes seriously. It informs his people-first approach, allowing him—along with the support of TDS’ impressive bench strength and firsthand knowledge—to offer practical, timely and cost-effective solutions that can be implemented quickly and simply.

In addition to his work with TDS, Scott is involved with multiple organizations in Southern Manitoba, including the Morden Chamber of Commerce, Morden Enrichment Corporation and Central Community Homes.

"It’s important to serve your community. We want to make a tangible difference in the lives of the businesses and people around us, especially those who may be undergoing difficult circumstances."

Scott looks forward to growing his practice and expanding his service offerings, so he can continue to serve his community and clients.
