Marc Yu is an Edmonton-based lawyer practicing in the areas of health, insurance and privacy law. In his health law practice, Marc’s clients include health authorities, hospitals and healthcare workers in defending medical malpractice lawsuits. Marc also provides advice to territorial governments on policy and legislative drafting in the areas of professional regulation, mental health and healthcare reorganization. Marc also has experience across a number of areas of insurance law including bodily injury, property loss, subrogated claims, and professional liability. In his privacy practice, clients rely on Marc for issues related to access to information requests, privacy breaches and complaints before the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner.

Marc believes in client education as a key component of a successful relationship and delivers regular educational sessions to clients of the firm and also through his role as an educator at the University of Alberta.

"I believe in providing clients with legal advice they would expect from our firm, along with business-oriented solutions. Locating the law is usually only the first step, as it needs to be translated into practical advice that can be integrated into the day-to-day activities of the client’s business environment."

Clients come to Marc for support on a number of issues, including:

  • Medical-legal advice in the areas of malpractice defence, hospital-physician privileging issues, and legislative drafting
  • Guidance with developing, improving and implementing company-wide privacy policies and human resource privacy initiatives
  • Support across a number of components of insurance law, including bodily injury, property loss, subrogated claims and professional liability

Outside of Work

"I love living in a dynamic, growing city like Edmonton - there’s always something to do," says the urban explorer. Whether he’s engaging with the city’s growing arts and culture scene, painting in acrylic or pastels, or playing tennis, Marc is always looking for ways to make the most of his time outside of work.
