We are shocked and devastated by the senseless crime motivated by hatred and racism that was committed in our community on June 6. We extend our deepest condolences to the friends and family of those who were killed, and wish a full recovery to the surviving young boy who remains in hospital. We stand in solidarity with our Muslim partners, colleagues, clients, friends, and neighbours in rejecting Islamophobia in all forms, and demanding better for our community. Hatred has no place here. It diminishes every one of us. Each of us shares the responsibility for putting an end to it. We recognize that as members of the legal profession, our share of that responsibility is heightened. This unspeakable crime strikes at the very core of the Muslim community’s sense of security and will have a lasting impact. Although this tragedy can never be undone, we believe the goodness in our city will prevail. We commit to be better for each other, to demand better from each other and to share love, kindness and tolerance with one another. We must stand together to build a safer, more inclusive community for all.

The Professionals Practice Group at Siskinds has extensive experience dealing with many different legal issues that physicians encounter throughout their careers, both professionally and personally. We understand that each stage of a physician’s career will attract different legal needs and considerations. The needs of a newer physician are different than those of a physician who is in the middle of his or her career, or one who is nearing retirement from practice. As busy professionals, physicians may experience rapid change as their careers and personal circumstances advance. We recognize the unique legal and business requirements that physicians are faced with, and our experience in advising physicians on a variety of legal issues allows us to offer a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary suite of services tailored to assist physicians throughout their personal life, their career, and into retirement.
