EXPERIENCE AT CHAND & CO.:
Carly joined our firm in January 2022. Since then, Carly has been involved in countless files ranging in complexity and subject matter at our firm.
In 2022 alone, Carly accomplished the following:
The resolution of a licence appeal tribunal proceeding, whereby the appellant got to keep their professional licence to operate as a motor vehicle dealer despite receiving a notice of proposal to have their licence revoked. A hearing was dispensed with on the consent of the parties. The respondent in this proceeding was the Director of the Motor Vehicle Dealers Act, 2002. Carly acted for the appellant.
The resolution of a professional conduct proceeding against a lawyer, whereby Carly advocated for the lawyer. Thanks to Carly’s hard work, the lawyer did not have to face any disciplinary conduct by the Law Society of Ontario and the lawyer’s licence is in good standing.
The resolution of a commercial litigation proceeding, whereby the defendants were not required to pay one penny of the claim amount sought by the plaintiffs. Carly acted for the defendants.
The early resolution of an occupational health and safety proceeding, whereby the defendant made an early guilty plea to one provincial offence charge at a significantly reduced fine amount than contemplated by the applicable Act. The remaining five charges against the defendant were withdrawn as part of the resolution. Carly acted for the defendant.
The resolution of a licence appeal tribunal proceeding, whereby the appellants got to keep their professional licence to operate a child care centre despite receiving a notice of proposal to have the licence revoked. A hearing was dispensed with on the consent of the parties. The respondent in this proceeding was the Director of the Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014. Carly acted for the appellants.
We are excited to see what Carly will accomplish next in 2023.
