Field Law has one of the largest groups of professional regulatory lawyers in Western Canada. Our lawyers act for numerous regulatory colleges and organizations, providing advice on matters such as governance, legislative reform, registration, continuing competence, discipline, unauthorized practice and privacy. Our lawyers appear before a variety of tribunals to prosecute allegations of unprofessional conduct, to address registration issues and to act as independent legal counsel to tribunals. We also have experience at all levels of Court in applications for judicial review and appeals relating to the regulation of professions and in defending lawsuits brought against regulatory organizations.

We focus on preventative law and practical advice. We regularly provide training for staff and members of regulatory colleges and organizations on topics such as How to Run an Effective Discipline Hearing, Assessing Credibility and How to Prepare Reasons. We publish regular newsletters and case comments on matters of interest to professional regulators and we host a ‘round table’ discussion series for members of the professional regulatory community. One of our group members, James Casey, Q.C. is also the author of two significant publications: The Regulation of the Professions in Canada and A Guide to the Health Professions Act.
