barrister & solicitor Employment and Conduct lawyer

We understand that lawyers are subject to strict regulation and client complaints. We understand the demands placed upon them by regulators, by the public and by the competitive environment in which they practice. 

We help lawyers throughout Canada who are facing employment law or professional misconduct, competence, fitness to practice, administrative, civil negligence or criminal proceedings. We'll give you our considered legal opinion on the likely optimal outcome of your case, negotiate for you, and appear as your advocate. You'll have a strong ally to lean on at every stage of the proceedings. 

Lawyers should not try to go up against their regulator alone without legal representation. Very few lawyers have had experience with professional conduct proceedings; law school and practice experience in other areas of law is not adequate preparation to effectively defend yourself. Professional conduct proceedings unfortunately don't have the same checks and balances that are inherent in the court-based civil and criminal justice system. Inconsistent regulatory policies, unreliable evidence of alleged misconduct, and incoherent sanctions may be the result of uncontrolled proceedings if you don't have an advocate to hold your regulator to account. 

Contact us today to discuss the lawyer professional conduct situation you may be facing.
