Canada’s rigorous environmental regulations have placed a high premium on the advice rendered by leading lawyers in this discipline, and the sophistication of the national environmental bar is attested to by the 58 practitioners we recognise in this chapter – making it one of the largest in the current edition.
Three lawyers feature from “first rate” environmental boutique Willms & Shier Environmental Lawyers LLP in Toronto. Senior partner John Willms is an internationally recognised specialist in planning and municipal law, as well as a “well known and respected” name in drafting new environmental legislation and administrative structures. Donna Shier is one of Canada’s leading contaminated land lawyers with “exceptional” expertise in environmental due diligence, compliance and liability protection. Completing the firm’s listings, Marc McAree comes highly recommended for his abilities in environmental litigation and ADR proceedings.
