We provide tools to assist our clients in achieving the objectives they have established for themselves. In particular, we provide advice in support of negotiations and other dealings with federal, provincial and municipal governments and industry, as well as purely internal organizational matters. The range of support we provide includes:

  • Legal and strategic advice to First Nations and Aboriginal organizations
  • Legal and policy research on Aboriginal and human rights and environmental issues
  • Legal drafting
  • Legal review of strategic communications.

Some initiatives we have provided advice on include:

  • Treaty negotiations and implementation
  • Consultation and accommodation agreements with other governments
  • Impact benefit agreements with industry
  • First Nations education
  • Environmental assessment.

To support clients that require advice outside our areas of expertise, we sub-contract the services of, or refer them to, other lawyers as appropriate.
