Public Law

One of Canada’s Leading Public Law Firms

We are a leading law firm in the area of public law, including challenges to government action and the constitutional validity of laws and government action. We have been at the forefront of major legal developments in First Nations rights and human rights in Canada, and continue to protect and advance the fundamental constitutional rights and liberties of Canadians and the Aboriginal rights of Indigenous peoples.

With expertise in Administrative Law and Judicial Review, our lawyers represent clients in provincial and federal courts and before tribunals, commissions, and appeal boards. We act for local government authorities and Nations to protect their own laws and jurisdiction when challenged by others.

Now more than ever, issues related to our climate and the impact of industry are driving political and social change. With a broad expertise in Environmental Law and Natural Resource Law, our lawyers have considerable experience advising on environmental protection, management, and assessment. We assist clients to ensure that the environment, land and resources are adequately protected when you or a third party are working on projects that may affect the environment.
