Professional Liability & Regulation

Vladi advises and defends regulated professionals named in civil and regulatory proceedings. She also prosecutes actions against regulated professionals on behalf of members of the public who have suffered losses due to a professional’s negligence or breach of fiduciary duty. Vladi regularly advances claims of alleged negligence against lawyers, and acts on disputes relating to lawyers’ compensation. She is experienced in the defence of claims against various types of healthcare providers governed by the Regulated Health Professionals Act. She also regularly advises clients regarding claims against real estate agents or brokers.

  • Representing members of professional colleges with respect to inquiries, complaints, disciplinary proceedings, and licensing and registration matters (including with respect to candidates seeking to become members)
