Constitutional Law deals with two main areas: Civil liberties (which is the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms) and division of powers (such as whether the provincial or federal government is responsible). In some cases, governments pass laws or act in a manner that may be contrary to the Canadian constitution. This is where our experienced lawyers come in. Examples of potentially unconstitutional laws include regulations that restrict freedom of expression, religion, equality, or the right to life, liberty and security of the person.
Constitutional cases are generally complex and may involve litigation up to the highest court in Canada (the Supreme Court of Canada).
Our experienced constitutional lawyers provide interpretive advice, opinions and legal representation. We have set new precedents in connections with issues such as aboriginal law and litigation, Charter rights and federal and provincial jurisdictional disputes.
Constitutional cases can be among the most complex and specialized of all cases to bring forward, as they raise issues with our most fundamental framework for all government powers. The team at Hajduk Gibbs has the expertise and experience to take these cases on with an unparalleled track record of success for our clients.
