Natural Resource Law

A Balance of Environmental Preservation & Economic Promise

Resources that air, land, and water provide are dear to us all. We know that for many of our clients they are a cornerstone of their Aboriginal rights and are fundamental to their identity and way of life. We also know that those resources are a means by which economic development and a better way of life can be obtained by the communities our clients represent. Striking a balance is complex, and requires thoughtful consultation, compliance, and commitment.

Our team of lawyers combine their expertise across practice areas, including Environmental Law, to counsel clients on the diverse and interconnected legal issues affecting natural resource sectors. We provide strategic advice in operating lawfully and profitably, while at the same time honouring traditional knowledge and conservation practices. 

We work with clients to develop strategies and implement initiatives related to:

  • Mining
  • Forestry
  • Fisheries
  • Energy and pipelines

One of our lawyers is a Registered Professional Forester in British Columbia. Drawing on his knowledge of the practical operations and regulatory framework of British Columbia’s forestry industry, we are able to quickly understand the issues at hand and act to achieve our client’s goals.
