Bespoke Law Professional Corporation

Founder, Principal Lawyer

Nadia Jandali Chao is a trusted and strategic adviser on matters relating to health law, privacy law, commercial agreements, risk management, and corporate governance. She offers a unique and well-rounded perspective due to the fact that she has both litigation and corporate law experience. She started her career in a top-tier civil litigation practice before transitioning to in-house corporate law positions which involved serving in both legal and business management roles at a senior level. 

At Cancer Care Ontario (now Ontario Health), Nadia was responsible for managing the legal and privacy teams and advising its board and management on matters relating to corporate law, health law, privacy law, workplace investigations, and corporate governance. She was accountable for CCO’s complex privacy program which protected one of the most comprehensive healthcare data sets in Canada in a uniquely regulated environment. In that role, Nadia developed policies, conducted training, managed privacy breaches, engaged with the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario, conducted privacy risk assessments, and negotiated data sharing agreements. 

She then took that experience to the private sector to act as General Counsel and Head of Privacy for a healthtech start-up where she built out a legal and privacy function during a period of intense growth. She engaged in contract drafting and negotiation, privacy program management (risk assessments, policies and procedures, training), board governance, enterprise risk management, and advised on the complex legal issues related to the intersection of healthcare regulation and virtual care.

Most recently, she founded Bespoke Law Professional Corporation through which she provides legal and privacy support primarily in the health sector.

In addition to her diverse professional experiences, she has engaged in cutting-edge educational opportunities such as the Rotman/CBA Business Leadership Program for In-House Counsel, which prepares lawyers to become strategic business partners; a Master of Laws in Privacy and Cybersecurity (in progress); and the Certified Information Privacy Professional (Canada) certification.
