Allan Donovan and Nadir André, both listed in The Best Lawyers in Canada™ for 2022 in Indigenous and First Nations Practice, weigh in on moving forward through the legal sector.
This publication features more than 6,000 lawyers listed in the 16th edition of The Best Lawyers in Canada™ along with over 500 lawyers listed in the inaugural edition of Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch in Canada.
