We work at the intersection of Aboriginal law and resource and economic development. We have negotiated precedent-setting agreements that facilitate practical solutions involving Aboriginal people, resource developers, municipalities, and the environment.
We help clients reach reasonable agreements that are “win-win” solutions, and avoid the cost and disruption of court proceedings. When recourse to the courts and tribunals is necessary, we have a record of experienced and determined advocacy, focused on our clients’ needs and objectives.
We assist First Nations, Métis, industry, and government organizations with Litigation and Dispute Resolution:
- Land Claims & Rights Litigation
- Challenging & Appealing Government Decisions
- Defence of Prosecutions
- Neutral Facilitation or Mediation
- Public Inquiries
