Kate Dewhirst Health Law - bringing the law to life. 1:41 minutes

I’m a health lawyer in Toronto

I'm a strong and passionate advocate for improving the healthcare system by making things simpler for those who work in it.

I work for

Hospitals, Family Health Teams, primary care clinics, Nurse Practitioner Led Clinics, charities and all sorts of healthcare organizations. All over the province.

I know health privacy issues

My training for teams on health privacy and training for Privacy Officers is second-to-none.

I travel all over Ontario

Many of my clients are small clinics and teams far from the big city. It’s important that remote communities get the same service as those close by. I love to travel to visit my clients.

I'd like to work for you

Law can be messy and complicated. I specialize in problem resolution, providing sound, understandable advice to all my clients. Whatever it is, we will fix it, together.

I write an award-winning blog

I write on issues that are interesting and that touch on my work as a health lawyer. You'll find my blog here.

My clients are located all across the province...
