Canada’s North is undergoing a period of transformation and with it comes great economic opportunity. As businesses seek to balance economic development with the social, cultural, infrastructure, environmental and ecological needs of the region, they require practical, business-driven legal advice to help them seize opportunities and manage risk through their life cycles.

As a business with a deep commitment to reinvesting in the communities we operate in, Field Law is committed to the growth and development of Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Yukon. Situated in downtown Yellowknife, and regularly traveling across the North, our lawyers handle a variety of complex matters for businesses, bands, governments, boards and tribunals.
