THE “ALL SIDES” PERSPECTIVE IN PROFESSIONAL REGULATION
Lerners Professional Regulation Group has a lengthy and accomplished history in professional regulation with both health and non-health professions. Our lawyers serve as Independent Legal Counsel to Discipline and Fitness to Practise Committees and we have represented both members and regulators in all manner of regulatory proceedings, including: investigations and inspections arising from complaints or other sources; practice assessments; quality assurance proceedings; discipline and fitness to practise hearings; illegal practice prosecutions; applications for registration and reinstatement; appeals to the Health Professions Appeal Board; and appeals and judicial review applications to the Divisional Court. This experience allows us to remain current regarding the legal and regulatory priorities, trends and concerns that impact our clients and provides us with a unique perspective of the competing interests at play in regulatory matters.
In addition to our litigation work, the corporate lawyers in our Professional Regulation Group advise our member and regulator clients on employment matters, professional corporations and governance issues. We have also assisted clients with drafting and interpreting legislation, standards, policies, guidelines, regulations and by-laws.
