  • Advising lawyers on issues related to their employment of staff and paralegals, as well as potential billing issues;
  • Representing lawyers at various stages of the LSO complaints and discipline process, such as responding to an initial LSO complaint, and cooperating with an investigation in accordance with the Law Society Act;
  • Representing lawyers before the Proceedings Authorization Committee;
  • Defending lawyers at LSO discipline hearings;
  • Advising on next steps for lawyers whose licences have been suspended or revoked; and
