What our clients say about us

Excellent work. Jordan Glick and his team have the knowledge and experience I needed. My issue was cleared up quickly. Highly recommended.


Jordan and his staff are quick to grasp the heart of legal matters, and can empathize with the clients situation, in the most realistic and honest manner. Jordan and his staff highlights and clarifies the significance of the legal steps and maintains very clear and responsive line of communication with their clients. I am very pleased and thankful for having met and worked with Jordan and his staff and highly recommend their services.


Jordan was far and away the best regulatory lawyer that we have worked with. He is professional responsive and made himself available at all times which was important to us. We were very impressed by his professionalism, knowledge and sound legal advice. Would highly recommend.


Glick Law helped me through a very difficult time in my life. At our initial consult (which was very scary for me being totally inexperienced with the law) Jordan Glick explained everything to me in a calm, informative and comforting manner. From then on, I primarily worked with Jordan Stone, who was always professional, compassionate and willing to take the time to answer any questions I had. During a pretty terrible time in my life, it was a very positive experience working with Glick Law and I recommend them strongly.


Frequently Asked Questions

Regulatory law — a branch of administrative law — addresses decisions made by tribunals and governmental agencies at the federal, provincial, and municipal levels of government. Regulatory laws are designed to protect the Canadian public, with specific rules governing each body.

Professional regulation is the governance of professions by the government and self-regulating bodies, including regulatory colleges and associations. Professional regulation aims to ensure that professions in health, financial, and other industries operate in a manner that ensures public safety and protection.


Regulatory bodies are responsible for establishing, monitoring, and enforcing standards which are put in place to ensure that professions provide safe and competent services to the public.

A regulatory complaint is a complaint filed with a regulatory body against a professional for failing to adhere to the expectations and standards set out in the regulator’s rules and regulations. Complaints are filed when it is alleged that certain ethical or professional standards are not met and may include:

  • Professional Misconduct
  • Harassment
  • Unlawful Practice
  • Professional Incompetence
  • Disgraceful, Dishonourable or Unprofessional Conduct

If you’re facing complaints involving any of the above, a GlickLaw complaints lawyer can provide advice and representation to guide you through the process and achieve the best outcome possible.

A regulation lawyer provides legal counsel and representation to regulated professionals facing complaints or misconduct allegations. Regulatory lawyers help their clients navigate the claims process, from disciplinary hearings to investigations and appeals — ensuring their rights are protected and reducing potential consequences.


If you find yourself faced with a regulatory complaint, finding a professional misconduct lawyer in Toronto is the first step to resolving this matter.

A judicial review lawyer specializes in helping corporations or professionals challenge decisions made by an administrative tribunal or governmental body. Judicial review lawyers in Ontario work on behalf of their clients to ensure their applications are appropriately brought before the courts.

Decisions made by statutory bodies or tribunals may be eligible for judicial review in Canada. Generally speaking, only final decisions from a tribunal are eligible for judicial review in Canada. Interim decisions which do not finally determine the rights of the parties involved or resolve the complaint are typically not eligible for review.


A seasoned judicial review lawyer can help you understand the intricacies of filing an application for judicial review.

Judicial reviews can be a lengthy, complicated, and expensive process. Judicial review lawyers are an integral asset to achieving the result you seek.

To apply for judicial review, you must generally be directly affected by a decision of a government agency, tribunal, board, or decision-maker. While deadlines differ between courts, an application for judicial review must generally be filed quickly, often within 30 days of the decision being challenged.


Enlist the help of a professional regulation lawyer in Toronto to ensure you’ve met all review application deadlines.

The first step to filing a judicial review in Ontario is finding a professional regulation lawyer to represent you and advocate on your behalf. As legal counsel, they can help organize your application, gather appropriate documents and files, and ensure you’ve met the appropriate deadlines outlined by the courts.


The process for filing a judicial review in Ontario begins with a “Notice of Application for Judicial Review” (Form 68A) with the Divisional Court. This notice must be served to the Attorney General of Ontario, the person who exercised statutory power, and any other parties who participated in the original hearing.

The judicial review process can take months from filing a judicial review application and potentially more than a year. Your regulatory lawyer will be able to communicate expected timelines with you during the review process.
