Fasken’s leading health law practice is one of the largest in Canada.  Our team is comprised of lawyers from a variety of practice areas including: corporate, labour and employment, litigation, real property, privacy, technology and intellectual property who service those who provide health care (e.g. hospitals, long-term care homes, private clinics, independent health facilities), those who regulate health care (e.g. professional colleges) and those who fund healthcare (e.g. government agencies and foundations).

Fasken’s Health Group has deep experience and trusted relationships with a wide range of health sector clients in each of our regional markets, as well as at the national level. We pride ourselves on our responsive, client-focused service and business-minded advice.

We are known for:

  • major public-private partnership (PPP) infrastructure projects to construct new hospitals, particularly in BC, extensive experience in health sector integrations, amalgamations and complex corporate restructurings;
  • long-standing relationships with health regulatory colleges including the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario whom we have acted as independent legal counsel for nearly 40 years
  • breadth of experience acting for health sector organizations on labour and employment matters in Ontario and Quebec for more than 30 years. We have represented hospitals on hundreds of arbitration cases with a winning record in over 90% when decisions were rendered
