Individuals in regulated occupations invest significant resources into qualifying and practising their profession. Society rightly holds them to a high standard of conduct. Any allegation of misconduct could lead to significant reputational damage and lifelong consequences.
Neuberger & Partners LLP exists to advocate for professionals who seek high-calibre representation in the face of disciplinary investigations. Drawing upon years of experience and proven strategies*, our legal team assists clients in assembling a solid, impactful defence before self-regulating bodies.
Navigating Clients Through Regulatory Investigations
As a premium law firm, Neuberger & Partners LLP provides professionals with access to sophisticated legal service in a boutique firm setting. Our lawyers work continually to develop comprehensive and creative approaches to managing the risks associated with professional disciplinary action.
Our firm has represented clients in disciplinary hearings throughout the Greater Toronto Area and beyond. As lawyers, we have built a solid reputation with courts, tribunals and licensing agencies across the province. We have close familiarity with a broad spectrum of self-governing bodies, their processes and regulatory frameworks. We leverage this knowledge and experience to move our clients effectively and efficiently toward the most optimal outcome possible.
Insightful Guidance In A Range Of Disciplines And Charges
Our lawyers have acted on behalf of such professionals as:
- Lawyers and paralegals
- Doctors, nurses, dentists, pharmacists and other medical practitioners
- Insurance brokers, accountants and advisors in the financial sector
- Teachers, real estate brokers, engineers and other regulated professionals
Charges vary, but our lawyers can represent clients who face either criminal charges before the justice system, disciplinary investigations by regulatory bodies or civil suits in professional liability claims.
One reason underlying our record of success is our legal team’s dedication to continually expanding our knowledge base. By keeping abreast of developments in both law and other sectors such as finance and psychology, our lawyers are able to use multidimensional insights in engineering an effective defence for our clients.
Strategic Advocacy To Manage Risk For Professionals
After helping hundreds of clients, our lawyers are cognizant of and sensitive to the complexities of disciplinary cases. We understand the demands of working in professional environments. Individuals can easily and unintentionally fall prey to mounting pressures and find themselves facing potentially career-ending allegations of misconduct.
Our role is to help clients fight strategically for what they have at stake. Part of our success in crafting an effective defence is in working collaboratively. Our lawyers take a team approach to analyzing the facts and devising possible defence tactics. We also frequently draw on a network of complementary advisors as forensic psychiatrists, forensic accountants and technology experts.
Our founder, Joseph Neuberger, along with John Navarrete have extensive experience in defending Professional Discipline matters. We are assisted by Mariya Protsenko, who has worked on numerous complex criminal and professional discipline cases.
