Indigenous Governments

Indigenous governments rely on our deep experience in Treaty negotiations and implementation, lands management, governance and Aboriginal and Treaty rights.

We advise governing bodies on issues such as bylaw development, taxation, financing, utility and municipal services agreements, real property conveyances and conflicts of interest.

We assist Indigenous organizations and communities in identifying and articulating their own legal traditions so that they can be used to assist in governance and administrative decision-making, to guide the development and implementation of laws, to assert rights recognition, and to assist and strengthen the evidence required for Aboriginal rights and title litigation as well as for consultation and regulatory processes.

Indigenous Businesses

Indigenous businesses rely on our expertise in economic development, intellectual property, taxation and employment law.

We provide effective legal services and strategic advice on the creation and administration of all forms of business structures, business associations, incorporated non-profit entities, partnership structures, and trusts. We assist Indigenous businesses in all aspects of economic development, including secured transactions, expansion, and growth.

Indigenous Organizations

Indigenous organizations rely on our proven knowledge of human rights law, Aboriginal Law and regulatory hearings.

We assist Indigenous environmental organizations in accessing a wide range of legal tools to protect lands, forests, wildlife, fish, and marine environments.
