Our regulatory compliance and defence clients include businesses and institutions, private individuals, and regulated professionals. We have extensive knowledge of relevant legislation in this area including: Liquor Licence Act, Consumer Protection Act, Competition Act, Electricity Act, Motor Vehicle Dealers Act, and Ontario College of Trades and Apprenticeship Act.
We recognize that almost every sphere of the economy is regulated by federal or provincial legislation and it is of critical importance that businesses and individuals take a proactive approach to regulatory compliance. When this proactive approach fails, businesses and professionals must ensure that they are adequately protected and defended against charges threatening to disrupt business and cause financial hardship.
Our lawyers advise clients affected by federal, provincial or municipal government decisions and recognize that when a corporation or individual faces a regulatory offence, they face serious consequences that may have long lasting repercussions. With that in mind we offer our clients a highly personalized and attentive legal defence that takes into account the high stakes involved.
