Local governments have unique needs, structures and decision-making processes. We recognize that these political entities need to make decisions based on the greater good. We offer legal representation for regional districts, drainage and sewerage districts, cities and municipalities, and any entity that enjoys special legal status as a “local government” under provincial legislation like the Local Government Act or the Vancouver Charter.
We have experience in a broad set of claims and we’ve worked with municipalities to resolve procurement, construction, and tendering issues. We also act for municipalities on liability exposures like slip and falls. To avoid problems before they happen—our risk management services help assess and identify risks associated with a broad set of programs, like snow removal and infrastructure projects.
