Chambers Canada has released its annual rankings of Canadian law firms and lawyers for 2020. This year, our firm and three of our lawyers were recognized for their expertise.
MT+Co. Recognized as a Leading Law Firm
MT+Co. has been recognized as a leading Canadian law firm in the area of Aboriginal Law – Representation of Indigenous Peoples. According to Chambers:
What the Team is Known For
Dynamic Vancouver-based business law firm, with a strong focus on the economic development of First Nations. The team offers support across the full gamut of Aboriginal issues, including project development, governance, rights and title, tax, employment, real estate and environmental law. Shows considerable aptitude for leveraging the multidisciplinary strengths of its team to offer sound commercial support, including joint venture mandates. The firm is also increasingly involved advising on government-to-government agreements, including resource revenue sharing agreements and reconciliation actions. It has recently been bolstered by the addition of several notable lateral hires.
Represented the Nuu-chah-nulth Tribal Council as intervener before the Court of Appeal in a case concerning Aboriginal rights to commercial fisheries.
Notable Practitioners in this Practice Area
The “very professional” Merle Alexander centres his practice on Indigenous resource law. He is especially experienced in economic rights, assisting clients with government-to-government agreements and the structuring of business ventures.
Robert Miller leverages his experience representing both industry and Aboriginal groups “to bring a balanced perspective that most lawyers tend not to have.” His practice ranges from the establishment of economic development plans for First Nations to mutual benefit and impact and benefit agreements.
We are proud of the work that we do for our Indigenous clients, and are grateful to be recognized by Chambers in this important area of our practice.
