Regulatory law is what we do. Whether it is appearing before a professional regulatory in a discipline proceeding, or fighting for our clients at the Ontario Energy Board, or any of the other regulatory boards that could affect you, this is how we spend our days (and some nights).
Many lawyers can represent you or your organization in regulatory matters. Only a few make that their area of specialty. We work hard to maintain an expertise in regulatory law. If that’s what you need, that’s what we offer.
Our lawyers know how regulatory boards work, but also know the law within which they operate. Effective representation within the system requires not just an understanding of that system. It also requires an ability to challenge that system when necessary.
We are known for our three principles of regulatory representation:’ Always look for win-win solutions’, ‘Think long term’, and ‘Walk softly, but carry a big stick.’ Everyone knows we’ll fight if we have to, but a solution through negotiation will often be a better result for our clients.
