Aboriginal Litigation

Overview

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
