Welcome to JFK Law’s new blog!
Our group has grown quickly since the founding of the firm in 2009. Our lawyers are leaders in the practice of aboriginal law and are presently representing clients across Canada who are engaged in critical litigation, complex negotiations and creative dispute resolution.
In this space we will share insight and analysis from our lawyers and staff on issues related to aboriginal and constitutional law and to provide updates on our clients’ important work. Over the coming year, we will offer commentary on important developments in case law and provide regular updates and reviews of decisions released from courts across Canada and internationally.
We begin by highlighting two recent cases in which our firm acted for successful First Nation litigants:
- the Mikisew Cree First Nation challenge to the Federal Omnibus bills, in which JFK Law represented the successful applicant; and
- the victory in the Peel Watershed land use planning case, where JFK Law acted for an intervenor, the Gwich’in Tribal Council.
This week we will also post the first of our weekly reviews of decisions from courts across Canada that touch on aboriginal law issues.
We invite you to check back regularly or, sign up below to receive regular JFK Updates in your inbox.
