Jordan Glick represents The College of Chiropodists in high profile case involving disgraced foot specialist

JULY 12, 2017

WeirFoulds partner Jordan Glick recently represented The College of Chiropodists in a highly publicized case involving an Ottawa-based foot specialist that had his licence revoked after he admitted to treating clients with an implant, known as a stent, that he manufactured himself without Health Canada approval.

In the case, The College of Chiropodists identified 25 people who were treated with Pierre Dupont's foot stent between 2014 and 2016. Dupont used this stent as opposed to a Health Canada approved stent known as HyProCure, that his clients believed they were getting.

According to Jordan Glick, this was a case where Dupont "preyed on vulnerable patients and experimented on them without their knowledge."

Jordan acts as external counsel for a variety of self-regulating colleges and organizations where he conducts discipline, incompetence and fitness to practice proceedings, and provides litigation support in areas including registration, privacy, proceedings administered under the Provincial Offences Act and civil litigation. Jordan additionally has extensive experience defending professionals in a broad range of industries.

This case garnered national media attention and was covered by several outlets including the CBC, the Toronto Star, and MetroNews.
