  • A wide range of commercial matters, from employment and labour issues to tax and formation and organizational structuring of Indigenous businesses, joint ventures, trusts and negotiation of contracts
  • Indigenous community issues and development
  • Issues arising through the Indian Act and Regulations
  • Land claims, implementation and interpretation of treaties
  • Self government negotiations
  • Indigenous interests specific to forestry, mining and utilities development
