British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Epstein (Re), 2011 LSBC 12 (CanLII):

These considerations are among those referred to in what has now become the leading decision on sanctioning, Law Society of BC v. Ogilvie, [1999] LSBC 17. In that case the panel set out a useful list of considerations to be taken into account in deciding on an appropriate sanction. The list is not intended to be exhaustive. We set out below the considerations identified in Ogilvie that we think are relevant here.
