Stockwoods acts for a broad array of clients in regulatory and administrative law, including specialized practices in securities litigation, professional regulation, competition/antitrust, energy regulation, health law, and academic discipline. We represent companies and individuals in proceedings before boards and tribunals and in challenging administrative action before the courts.

We are regularly called upon to advise and represent public bodies and officials facing difficult or contentious litigation. As part of this practice, Stockwoods regularly acts as independent legal counsel to a substantial number of Ontario’s health regulatory bodies, assisting tribunal members in discharging their legal duties in the course of disciplinary hearings.

Our lawyers have also frequently acted as counsel before public inquiries, both as Commission Counsel and as counsel to affected parties, including in the Walkerton, Maher Arar, Air India, Ipperwash, and Mississauga public inquiries.
