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.
Some of the specific legal services we provide, tailored to physicians, include:
- incorporating, organizing and maintaining a professional corporation or corporations
- regulatory compliance with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO)
- corporate reorganization and restructuring
- agreements between physicians and health care organizations
- agreements among physicians, including Family Health Organizations (FHO)
- purchase and sale of medical practices
- partnership, fee-sharing, cost-sharing, and shareholder agreements
- commercial and residential real estate and leasing
- employment matters
- high net worth estate and succession planning
- wills and powers of attorney
- cyber security and privacy
