Emily Larose

"Responsive and thoughtful."
- Client Testimonial, Chambers Canada

Emily Larose is a partner in the firm’s Litigation Group and a member of the firm's cross-disciplinary Life Sciences team. She provides advice and representation to stakeholders in various regulated industries, with specific expertise working with Health Canada-regulated clients. She has experience advising on all manner of regulatory issues, risk management and policy matters and applies her regulatory expertise to product liability and class action litigation.

Emily's experience includes:

  • Providing advice on Health Canada regulatory issues, including pharmaceutical, medical device, food and natural health product marketing compliance, labelling, licensing, and mandatory problem and adverse event reporting
  • Managing compliance and mandatory reporting of incidents for consumer products under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act
  • Advising on product liability issues, such as risk management measures, managing recalls, and defending individual and class action litigation
  • Making and responding to federal and provincial access to information requests
  • Advising foreign companies entering the Canadian products market on licensing and other regulatory requirements
  • Advising retail pharmacy clients on professional, regulatory and drug benefit matters
  • Preparing and revising policies and agreements to reflect privacy legislation and best practices

Emily developed an interest in health law issues through her experiences at the Consent and Capacity Board and with the College of Nurses of Ontario. This interest has been further developed through an in-house secondment with the legal department of a multinational pharmaceutical company. 

Emily is on the Editorial Board of Class Action Journal. She has published and spoken on a variety of topics including the reuse of single-use medical devices, consumer product regulation in Canada, national class actions, natural health product marketing, spoliation, cross-border discovery and access to information requests.

As a former member of the firm’s Risk Management Committee, Emily is well-versed in developing practical and proactive solutions to manage and prevent risk exposure through policy development, implementation of best practices and maximizing the use of technologies.
