Cameron joined MT+Co. for the summer of 2020 and returned in October 2021 to complete his articles. We couldn’t be happier to have him back as a fully-fledged lawyer! 

Cameron works primarily for First Nations’ governments at different levels and for various departments (such as Fish and Wildlife, Lands and Resources, and Culture and Heritage) but also finds time to work for local businesses on a range of projects. He finds that understanding clients’ perspectives, values, and needs helps provide a solid foundation for working relationships and delivering client-oriented services. 

 Cameron works to meet his client’s needs by identifying the central elements of their particular legal issues, determining and prioritizing preferred outcomes, and providing practical solutions and advice. 

Why MT+Co.?

“After looking at several firms that all seemed the same, MT+Co. stood out as a group of folks actively resisting and trying to shift the norm. I wanted to find a place where I could be myself. Somewhere that didn’t come with the stereotypical baggage that is sometimes associated with law firms, where I can surround myself with kind, creative, and skilled people who are passionate about what they do. I’m thrilled to quote the Talking Heads and say, this must be the place.”

Expertise

Cameron provides a strong working interest in natural resource law, forestry law, Indigenous law and Aboriginal law. However, he can turn his hand to whatever project needs assistance, making him the human epitome of a Swiss Army knife. The secret ingredient to Cameron’s success is his ability to listen, ask questions, and communicate in all matters within his team (as well as his ability to have fun while doing it).

Worth Noting

Out of the office, Cameron enjoys working with his hands, which run the gamut from cooking, baking, and brewing to carpentry and metalwork. He spends rainy days inside with his incredible wife and two chirpy cats. The rest of the time, Cameron is usually outdoors hiking, hunting, foraging, or just enjoying a nice walk through the local scenery.
