Leaders in today’s healthcare sector must deal with an overlay of increasingly complex regulations. In McCarthy Tétrault’s Health Law Group, they find skillful practitioners who understand the plethora of statutes and laws that govern the many public and private institutions in this highly-regulated sphere. With our unequalled experience in business and litigation, we represent hospitals, long-term care and community facilities, retirement residences, nursing homes, laboratories, private health care providers and suppliers who interface with these institutions.
At McCarthy Tétrault, these organizations find:
- A multidisciplinary team of expert lawyers. Our national health law team consists of some 40 practitioners who specialize in the full spectrum of services to the health sector. In addition to business law, this includes litigation and administrative tribunal work, class actions, real estate, finance, labour, public/private partnerships, tax law and technology.
- Expertise in both federal and provincial health regulations. Canadian health care encompasses both provincial and federal laws. We can advise about situations in Ontario, British Columbia and Québec.
- Recognized leaders in the field. Our health law lawyers teach health practitioners in the Master’s in Health Administration program, Faculty of Medicine, at the University of Toronto, where future presidents and CEOs study the unique challenges that face their organizations in the continuing debate about health law in the 21st century.
Our Health Law Group regularly advises clients on:
- drafting and responding to proposals regarding internal trade rules for suppliers to the public sector;
- understanding the health environment in Canada with respect to the myriad existing statutes and acts;
- setting up companies from the private sector that are subject to health legislation;
- contract negotiations between governments and non-profit entities such as public laboratories, as well as between management and labour groups in hospitals;
- charitable initiatives and fundraising that involve foundations within health organizations;
- research and development agreements, joint ventures and public/private partnerships; corporate governance, bylaws, reorganizations, liability, security enforcement and regulatory compliance; and
- patient consent, professional negligence and clinical trials.
