Long-Term Care Law

Wickwire Holm has a well-established base in advising long-term care facilities such as nursing homes and residential care facilities around the Province. We began acting for many of these organizations more than a decade ago when they primarily needed advice from our Labour and Employment Group. However, these organizations are facing new and complex legal issues. As their legal issues have increased, Wickwire Holm has been there to assist with strategic legal advice to avoid or minimize legal liability.
