Regulatory Compliance and Defence

Toronto Municipal Licensing and Compliance Lawyer

We assist all types of businesses with issues related to municipal licensing and compliance. In particular, we guide clients through complex licence applications and defend licence holders facing by-law charges before the courts or in proceedings before administrative tribunals. Many of our clients are in the service industry and we are acutely aware of the importance of maintaining a licence as it relates to a business’s success and profitability. 

We appear before licensing committees, town councils and tribunals including the Toronto Licensing Tribunal, and have extensive knowledge of municipal by-laws and zoning provisions.  We also appear before various courts across the province, the Ontario Municipal Board and local planning and appeal tribunals.

The lawyers at Chand Snider LLP, including the municipal licensing and compliance group leaders, Pradeep Chand and Murray Snider, thrive on taking on the most challenging licence and compliance issues and use our unparalleled experience to successfully represent our clients. Over the years we have seen it all and helped clients mitigate legal and financial risks.
