The Ministry of Energy and Economic Development, the Job Creation Department and Trade Legal Services provide strategic legal advice and assistance on program, legislative and policy development initiatives. Lawyers in our industry also work closely with colleagues in other areas such as constitutional law, civil and legislative law, Crown Law Office – Civil and Legislative Counsel.
