Aboriginal Law

We believe that specializing in Aboriginal law is a fundamental part of practicing in Saskatchewan. If you’re a First Nation or First Nations Trust, you can put the knowledge of our Aboriginal law team, Tom Waller, Q.C., Perry Erhardt Q.C. and Virgil Thomson to work for you. OWZW has extensive experience representing First Nations/Aboriginal peoples in the negotiation of land and treaty claims. We have been involved in the acquisition of more than 100,000 acres of land acquired for addition to reserves and we can assist you with the submission of claims against the Government of Canada or against the Claims Tribunal . We can also help First Nations and Aboriginal clients with various other legal issues, including commercial developments and Residential School claims.
