Public Law deals with the relationship between the state and the individual or body corporate. It differs from most private law matters, because of the constitutional or statutory framework affecting that relationship. If you have an administrative or constitutional law problem, you are facing criminal or regulatory charges, or you need advice on how to work with government, you can turn to McInnes Cooper.

We have lawyers with a unique blend of experience to help you through the most difficult problems. We combine in-depth understanding of government and administrative processes with a thorough knowledge of business and commercial realities in Atlantic Canada.
