Professional Negligence and Regulation

We frequently act in professional discipline and negligence matters for professionals in a range of fields (including lawyers, accountants, physicians, dentists, engineers, architects, securities industry participants, and others), for regulators, and in related civil litigation for and against professionals.

Our representation often begins at the early stages of a matter before proceeding through the investigation or inquiry stage, referrals to discipline, hearings before regulators, and court proceedings, appeals, and judicial review.

Our lawyers have also been retained as expert witnesses regarding the standard of care for lawyers, and have testified in Ontario, other Canadian provinces, and elsewhere.

We also have extensive experience advising law firms about conflict of interest allegations and litigating lawyer disqualification motions.
