Forest Products & Agribusiness
Canada is a resource-rich country. Forestry, farming and fiber operations remain significant economic drivers.
Entities operating in this sector are subject to a complex regulatory environment that is unique to their specific industry. They face a myriad of risks and are often involved in litigation, be it in the civil context or as a result of charges or regulatory proceedings brought by government.
Our experienced litigators have successfully handled a number of disputes for forestry and agri-business clients. Examples include the successful defence of forestry clients in charges brought under the Forest Range and Practices Act and advising mill operators in respect of charges brought under the Environmental Management Act.
An understanding of your business and your industry positions us to effectively handle the risks inherent in these areas.
