Stikeman Elliott's Public Law & Constitutional Law Group offers expert advice to clients when the constitutionality of legislation or validity of a government action is at issue. We pride ourselves on providing both public and private-sector clients with the highest quality of service and performance.
Members of the group represent private businesses with respect to constitutional challenges of legislation or regulations and challenges under administrative law of the application of legislation or regulations and other actions of governments and public authorities. In addition, we advise on the negotiation and enforcement of public contracts, the issuance of permits and related matters. Our efforts on behalf of public and quasi-public bodies - including federal and provincial governments, government departments, administrative tribunals, professional regulatory bodies and political parties - generally focus on jurisdictional conflicts and on the scope of the body's authority, jurisdiction or potential liabilities.
