The best teams are those where skills and experiences complement each other rather than duplicate.

Patsy G. MacLean, QC

Patsy enjoys working with Health sector employers, which is not surprising, given that Patsy is a nurse-lawyer.  After working as a nurse for several years, she obtained her law degree from Osgoode Hall.  After articling with a prestigious Toronto firm, she returned home to her Island roots.  She has an abundance of familiarity with workplace law and health law issues from both sides of the gurney, having worked in the health system in a variety of management positions ranging from Utilization Management Coordinator, Assistant Director of Nursing to acting Executive Director of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Charlottetown, PEI.  She also rose through the ranks of legal services in the Government of Prince Edward Island culminating in her appointment as Assistant Deputy Attorney General, and later, Deputy Attorney General. In December 2015, Patsy was appointed as Queens Counsel.

Patsy joined HR Atlantic Law to bring together her health sector experience and legal knowledge with a focused practice that helps health organizations and professionals manage and mitigate risk through improved workplace practices and alternate workplace dispute resolution models.

Trained in collaborative law and a member of Collaborative Practice PEI, Patsy is a seasoned facilitator, assisting multiparty resolution of complex policy issues through a humane, compassionate and focused problem solving process.
