We Offer Our Clients A Highly Personalized and Attentive Legal Defence

Regulatory Compliance and Defence

Ontario College of Trades and Apprenticeship Act

We have considerable experience in handling investigations, enforcement, complaints and disciplinary matters under the Ontario College of Trades and Apprenticeship Act, and dealing with investigators, lawyers, and representatives of the Ontario College of Trades (OCOT). Where possible, we help our clients to exercise a preventative and pro-active approach to compliance.

Our clients include contractors, contractors’ associations and private businesses with employees and trades people regulated by Ontario College of Trades and Apprenticeship Act and the OCOT.

We regularly assist clients under investigation to seek best-possible outcomes with minimal interruption to business and their professional activity. We are acutely aware that a charge or investigation threatens our clients’ livelihoods and interrupts business. As a result, we ensure that we have a thorough understanding of investigation and enforcement powers of OCOT, as well as of developments within the industry. We believe this puts us in the best possible position to serve our clients’ best interests.
