The lawyers of our Administrative Law practice group advise and litigate on administrative law in the broadest sense of the word. To name a few examples:
• advice on zoning plans, all-in-one permits for construction and demolition, and project development (planning and zoning law);
• operating permits (catering industry);
• environmental permits; and
• subsidies (e.g. national funding for schools or provincial/municipal innovation subsidies).
We obviously bring legal actions against municipalities, provinces and the Minister in that context, but you will also find us on your side if you wish to enter into a contract with a public authority (e.g. project development).
In that regard we work together closely with our property specialists in the fields of purchase and lease. Our Retail & Hospitality practice group is an excellent example of that cooperation.
FORT’s Administrative Law practice group therefore guarantees a comprehensive and practical approach.
