First Nation Governance

First Nation governments regularly seek legal advice on various issues that are critical to the functioning of their administrations. We provide legal advice to our First Nation clients on employment and contractual matters, draft by-laws and policies, membership codes and custom election codes and develop trust agreements for the long term economic prosperity of the First Nation.

We have also been retained to give advice on legal matters arising under the Indian Act, have represented First Nations in election appeals and have successfully defended First Nations against legal challenges to their custom election codes.
