Decisions made by institutions, governments and public bodies are of increasing importance. Burchells LLP represents clients before government, regulatory and administrative boards, and in arbitration proceedings.
We also provide counsel to a number of tribunals and several of our lawyers have been appointed to sit as board members.
In addition to representing clients at hearings, we have experience challenging administrative decisions through judicial review applications before the Nova Scotia and Federal courts. Our lawyers can offer advice, either to assist decision-makers in discharging their legal obligations to afford due process, or in obtaining a court review of the decision-making process.
