Administrative & Public Law
Across sectors, there are times when organizations require the approval of various Canadian administrative agencies and tribunals in order to further their mandates. When a stamp of approval is required, McMillan’s administrative lawyers combine a deep understanding of Canadian administrative law with a strong recognition of our clients’ business objectives and stand ready to pursue litigation when the need arises.
Our litigation lawyers have represented clients before a wide range of administrative tribunals, including the Environmental Appeal Board, Labour Relations Boards, Information and Privacy Commissioners, the Natural Resources Conservation Board, the Trademarks Opposition Board, the Competition Tribunal, and others. Should an administrative agency and tribunal act outside their scope of authority — either unconstitutionally or unfairly — we seek relief for our clients via judicial review. In the face of challenging government action, McMillan’s Litigation Group has appeared before all levels of court, including the Supreme Court of Canada.
Our expertise is not limited to representing private-sector clients before administrative bodies. Our lawyers also act on behalf of governmental agencies and statutory decision-makers, advising them on points of administrative law and legal strategies to defend their interests.
McMillan professionals help clients lead by: appearing on their behalf before administrative tribunals; arguing judicial review applications and appeals of administrative decisions; providing advice on intellectual property issues; negotiating with tribunal officials; advising on the law and prospective legislative changes; dealing with expropriations and related matters.
