Brent is an experienced and innovative advisor to Indigenous communities on treaty negotiation and implementation, Indigenous corporate and economic development, and governance.

As legal counsel in the development and implementation of the Maa-nuth First Nations Final Agreement, Brent works closely with the five signatory Nations (as well as other Indian Bands and non-treaty Nations) to restore governance capacity, draft and codify legislation, and develop a framework of re-empowerment that provides economic and cultural development opportunities. His work within the Indigenous law context intersects a variety of sectors including law enforcement, fisheries, forestry, housing, among others.

Brent is a frequent presenter to Indigenous societies, companies, and governments as well as civic municipalities, federal government committees, and professional organizations.
