Biography

Mark Raven-Jackson is a civil litigation lawyer focused on health law and regulatory prosecutions under the Public Health Act. He is experienced in a broad range of health care-related issues on behalf of public and private sector clients in Alberta and the Northwest Territories. A significant part of Mark's practice is dedicated to representing hospitals facing complex medical malpractice claims and medical administrative leaders dealing with issues under the Medical Staff Bylaws.

Mark’s health care clients include medical staff, health authorities, active treatment hospitals, long-term care facilities and other health care providers. He regularly represents these clients in medical malpractice litigation and fatality inquiries and advises them regarding quality assurance and clinical issues, policies and standards of care. Known for his technical depth and skilled questioning, Mark has helped clients before the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench, the Alberta Court of Appeal, the Ontario Superior Court, the Supreme Court of the Northwest Territories, the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia and the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal. He also handles cases in Judicial Dispute Resolution proceedings, arbitration and mediation.

For over 17 years Mark has worked closely with health care organizations and health care staff, which has included defending them in lengthy, complex medical malpractice trials and at the Court of Appeal. Several of these trials involved allegations of medical malpractice that allegedly resulted in catastrophic birth injuries. Mark is also a frequent lecturer on risk management issues, nursing documentation, and best practices using practical examples from actual litigation.

Mark carefully monitors health care reform developments, medical malpractice and public health case law and health care legislation on a provincial and federal level, offering advice and guidance to clients impacted by any developments. He also provides clinical policy and practice opinions to health care clients to assist with operational issues.

Value to Clients

I listen conscientiously to my clients' interests. This results in a more creative work product, better-prepared witnesses, and more accurate legal advising.”

Outside the Office

Mark enjoys painting when he is away from the office. He also collects original comic book art.
