  • identify potential claims;
  • apply for funding;
  • assess claims’ strength and potential compensation values;
  • work with knowledge-keepers and other experts to prepare and submit claims;
  • negotiate settlements;
  • advocate at the Specific Claims Tribunal; and
  • create community trusts and assist with strategic planning so that Indigenous communities can experience long-term benefits from their compensation.

Our lawyers have experience preparing and negotiating complex claims, including those brought by more than one Indigenous group.
