McLennan Ross’s Health practice group represents the formalization of a long-standing practice area within the firm. Headed by partner Jonathan P. Rossall, Q.C., the group includes litigators, corporate commercial lawyers and labour & employment lawyers who share a common interest and experience in the health law field, primarily as it relates to doctors.
McLennan Ross’s Health practice group advises a diverse group of clients, ranging from physicians, physician practice groups and academic medicine departments, to the Alberta Medical Association, the Psychiatric Nursing Association, the Professional Association of Residents of Alberta and the Canadian Medical Protective Association.
McLennan Ross has represented this wide-ranging group of clients in the courts, in inquests, disciplinary proceedings, negotiations and in commercial endeavors involving alternative payment programs and the establishment of a variety of membership structures. We assisted the Alberta Medical Association with establishing Primary Care Networks in Alberta, representing a new and innovative way to deliver medical services to the public. Members of the Group have also provided extensive advice to medical organizations and government on health-related policy and legislative initiatives.
Our members have presented to physicians and physician associations on a variety of health law issues, and written extensively in the area of health law.
