Professional Regulation & Liability

We understand that there are few relationships more significant for professionals than those involving their professional standing. Goldblatt Partners has significant experience in proceedings before professional regulatory bodies, and in defending professionals against allegations of negligence.

Professionals who are accused of misconduct require a swift and effective resolution of the allegations. As professionals ourselves, we appreciate that your integrity, reputation and livelihood depends on our judgment, experience, and insight. We take the trust our clients place in us seriously.

Our lawyers have represented many different professionals, including teachers, accountants, psychologists, social workers and lawyers, both in civil proceedings and before their regulatory bodies.  We have also prosecuted on behalf of some regulatory bodies, and have acted as independent counsel to regulatory authorities and tribunals. We therefore have a unique insight into all aspects of professional regulation, and can advise our clients with the unique insight gained through our various experiences.

Defending lawyers against professional liability claims is a significant area of our practice. Many of our lawyers are preferred counsel to LawPRO and they understand the importance of a strong defence to professional negligence claims. We regularly achieve outstanding results for the lawyers we represent.
