Environmental Law

Environmental law overlaps with many issues that affect our clients, whether that is protection of aboriginal rights and title from the negative affects of resource development, government regulation that impacts the exercise of aboriginal rights, environmental regulation of First Nations’ businesses or environmental contamination that affects land.

With our experience and knowledge in this area, JFK Law can help you to assert and protect your rights during environmental assessment processes or when the government is contemplating environmental legislation that will affect you, provide advice on referrals for licences in your traditional territory, ensure your business meets regulatory requirements and defend you against regulatory charges.

Our lawyers are experienced advocates in front of regulatory decision makers such as the National Energy Board, Alberta Energy Regulator, Canadian Environmental Assessment Act panels, and the BC Environmental Appeal Board, as well as, all levels of court.
