Grounded in business perspective and experience, our team guides clients through challenging environmental and occupational health and safety law issues, whether they arise in the context of corporate transactions, litigation or regulatory matters.


Our scope of experience in environmental work is supported by its breadth: from the industries and regions we serve to the range of services we provide, we manage complex environmental matters impacting our clients’ operations, projects and transactions, as well as disputes when they arise.

We have deep experience in securing major environmental approvals for large, complex projects. We work seamlessly with our clients on bespoke strategies designed to both prioritize efficient application processing by regulatory authorities and minimize long-term litigation risks. We support clients in navigating the matrix of federal, provincial and territorial permitting frameworks, and we defend permits before administrative tribunals and the courts.
