We routinely appear in constitutional law and administrative law cases at all levels of Canadian courts, including the Supreme Court of Canada. We have also appeared at public inquiries and arbitrations.

Our expertise encompasses all aspects of constitutional law, including the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, federalism, aboriginal rights, and executive powers.

Our cases often encompass related questions of public international law and international human rights law.
