COVID19 and Temporary Office Closure

As of April 28, 2021, in view of guidance from provincial Public Health, Burchells LLP's offices at 1801 Hollis Street are temporarily closed to the public. We are hopeful this closure can be reversed in a couple of weeks, but will take our guidance from Public Health and the province.

In the meantime our IT resources are more than sufficient, and Burchells' lawyers and staff remain hard at work delivering results for our clients.  It's business-as-usual.  Don't hesitate to contact us by phone or email.

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.
