When there is a dispute about the Duty to Consult or any other matters that can affect Indigenous or Treaty Rights, JSS Barristers can provide counsel and insight based on decades of litigation and advocacy experience.
Special consideration must be given in matters that affect, or directly involve, the Indigenous Peoples in Canada. Our experience as advisors on both sides of the table can be an asset in identifying the core factors of a dispute - shining a light on the path towards negotiating a solution that benefits all parties.
We have represented our Indigenous clients in various litigations, negotiations and administrative advocacy matters on a broad range of vital matters. Our lawyers can also provide advice on Council governance and the duties that Councils have to their membership. Additionally, we have served as advisors to existing counsel providing support at all levels of court.
