As all lawyers and paralegals practicing in Ontario know, the Law Society of Ontario (“LSO”) is responsible for regulating the legal profession in the public interest, including investigating complaints made by the public against a practitioner, conducting discipline and fitness to practice proceedings, and determining whether a license should be suspended or permanently revoked.
For a lawyer or a paralegal, the potential consequences of a finding of negligence, professional misconduct, or other wrong by the LSO can be significant. The ultimate outcome may include fines, limitations on a lawyer or paralegal’s scope of practice, a suspension or revocation of a lawyer or paralegal’s license to practice, or even criminal charges.
Negative findings about a professional can also negatively affect their reputation within the community, their professional reputation, and their ability to continue working in their field or even outside their field.
