Professional Liability and Discipline

We routinely handle claims of professional negligence involving professionals and assist them in responding to complaint, disciplinary and fitness to practice proceedings before their governing bodies. We have defended a broad spectrum of professional clients including accountants, architects, dental hygienists, dentists, engineers, geneticists, inspectors, insurance agents and brokers, investment advisors, lawyers, naturopaths, nurses, occupational therapists, optometrists, paralegals, paramedics, pharmacists, physiotherapists, psychiatrists, real estate agents and social workers.

We have experience in all aspects of regulatory proceedings including acting as independent legal counsel to the discipline committee of governing body, as defence counsel to a broad range of health care professionals and prosecution counsel to the Association of Professional Engineers of Ontario in the governance of its members in matters involving deficient construction, deficient fire, life and safety systems and storm water management and drainage.
