Lonny Rosen elected to Advocates' Society

Toronto health lawyer Lonny Rosen, partner with Rosen Sunshine LLP, has been elected to serve on The Advocates’ Society board of directors for a four-year term.

"It's an honour to join the organization recognized as the voice of the litigation bar with a commitment to legal reform," he tells 

The appointment builds on Rosen's leadership roles with the CBA and OBA Health Law Sections, as well as the Medico-Legal Society of Toronto.

With a mission of promoting excellence in advocacy, The Advocates’ Society was established in 1963 to ensure the maintenance of the role of the advocate in the administration of justice, its website states.  “We attract members who are or aspire to be part of our community of best advocates," it also states.

Rosen is certified by the Law Society of Upper Canada as a specialist in health law. He advises with respect to health-care legislation and policies, and represents clients in a wide range of civil and administrative proceedings. He regularly represents health professionals in complaint and discipline matters, investigations, audits and peer reviews, hospital privileges disputes and in hearings before various health tribunals.

Rosen, who was named to Best Lawyers in Canada for health-care law for 2014 and 2015, advises individual, corporate and institutional clients on a wide variety of health-law issues, including privacy, the delivery of private health care and other aspects of practice management.

Since 2012, Rosen has served on the Consent and Capacity Board, an independent provincial body that conducts hearings under the Mental Health Act and the Health Care Consent Act. In this  capacity, Rosen presides over hearings of applications by individuals whose involuntary status in hospital or whose capacity to consent to treatment or admission to a care facility is in issue.

For six years, Rosen served as a member of the Hospital for Sick Children’s Research Ethics Board and he is currently a member of the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association’s Advance Care Planning Task Group, through which he helps to promote advance care planning in Canada.

Rosen frequently writes and speaks on health-law issues, including as a faculty member for Osgoode Professional Development’s Certificate Programs in Health Law and Mental Health Law and as co-Director for the Osgoode Certificate in Professional Regulation and Discipline in the Ontario Health Sector.
