Professional Regulation

Professional Regulation and Discipline Lawyer Toronto



Licenced professionals are held to high standards of conduct in the discharge of their professional duties by their professional licensing bodies and regulators. The standards expected of professionals are higher than those expected of non-licenced professionals. They are required to meet stringent requirements in order to be formally licensed to practice. They must also continue professional training to keep up to date with new developments in their fields, maintain best practices, and meet ongoing licensing requirements.

Public scrutiny of the professions has been steadily increasing over the past decade. The regulatory response has been to demand more and better from professionals.

In the process of providing professional services to members of the public, a professional can unfortunately become the subject of a formal professional complaint. This will spark an investigation and, in turn, may lead to the institution of disciplinary proceeding before the professional’s licencing and regulatory body. Professional discipline hearings are basically adversarial trials. This area of litigation can be complex, requiring skill, contextual understanding of the profession and its regulator in qustion, and the exercise of a very high degree of professionalism by Counsel.
