The challenges facing healthcare boards are mounting. Governments require more transparency and accountability, directors are seeking best-in-class status and the rules of procedural fairness are being applied to more decision-making processes. Fasken assists with opinions, advice and documentation with respect to board governance.
We take a sensitive approach to interactions between and with directors, committees and management. The issues we often help with include bylaws, board charters, policies, fiduciary duties and conflicts of interest.
We can also advise with respect to committee terms of reference, credentialing and privileging issues, executive compensation, directors and officers liability issues and rules of order.
Fasken acts for hundreds of health organizations across Canada. We work with private and public entities as well as non-profits and corporations whose activities intersect with the system.
Our team is recognized for its deep experience and trusted relationships with a wide range of health sector clients in each of our regional markets, as well as national-level expertise. We share ideas and collaborate with clients wherever and whenever we can.
