Administrative & Regulatory Law


A Wealth of Administrative Law Expertise

Administrative law is highly complex, encompassing the intricate rules and policies that regulategovernmental, quasi-governmental and non-governmental agencies, boards and tribunals. The lawyers of Duboff Edwards Haight & Schachter have a wealth of experience in this area, representing businesses, organisations and individuals before administrative and quasi-judicial bodies, as well as challenging or seeking to uphold their decisions upon judicial review and appeal before the courts.


Focusing on a number of sectors and industries, our administrative law practice provides practical legal guidance in the areas of professional regulation, labour and employment, policing, privacy and human rights, and energy utility regulation. Our lawyers act as counsel to numerous tribunals and agencies, as well as parties before tribunals and administrative agencies, and are experienced in drafting judicial review applications, legislation, appeals and policies. 


We perform a high volume of work in the area of professional regulatory law, advising numerous regulatory colleges, organizations and professionals in the areas of professional misconduct, registration, continuing competence, discipline, unauthorized practice and privacy.


We appear before a variety of disciplinary bodies to prosecute allegations of professional misconduct and lack of knowledge, skill and judgment. We also regularly act for individuals who are the subject of investigations or disciplinary proceedings before professional regulatory tribunals. We have represented disciplinary bodies seeking to uphold their decisions in applications for judicial review and appeals relating to professional regulatory matters, as well as individuals seeking to overturn them. Our team also acts as independent counsel to several professional regulatory bodies in the drafting of new legislation, policies and by-laws.


Working with individual clients and members of professional regulatory organizations, we provide training on topics that include How to Prepare Reasons, Conducting Investigations and Procedural Fairness.


Administrative law, including professional regulatory law, has far-reaching implications – we take great pride in providing exceptional legal counsel. Let our expertise work for you.
