There are numerous statutes and regulations that apply to governmental authorities, businesses and individuals. Failure to comply can lead to judicial review applications, mandatory or prohibition orders, and criminal or civil liability.
We are expert at navigating the regulatory framework applicable to each of our practice areas. We are also adept at identifying whether a private law duty of care exists with respect to any statutory duties prescribed by statute that may lead to an action for damages for regulatory negligence.
We advise public sector clients in all aspects of regulatory liability and offer seminars on the subject in specialized areas, such as the statutory duties of municipal councillors and employees. We advise private sector clients in negligence or other claims they may have against governmental authorities.
