Meet our government lawyers in this area


We are recognized in the profession as leading public law lawyers. For well over a century we have been providing advice to entities at the federal and provincial levels of government. For this reason we understand how public decision-making and regulatory action is conducted within these senior levels of government.

We provide legal advice and assist government ministers, ministries, boards and agencies as they go about fulfilling their statutory mandates.

The work we have undertaken on behalf of the federal and provincial levels of government has ranged from appearing in constitutional and civil litigation, to acting as counsel at public inquiries, to advising on massive infrastructure projects. We have also provided advice – ranging over a large number of legal subject areas – to the many boards and tribunals the federal and provincial governments have established.
