Administrative Tribunals

Boughton Law’s lawyers are passionate about holding public services and government laws accountable. We have over 20 years of experience appearing before numerous provincial and federal tribunals.

Many laws and regulations that may impact your business are subject to the oversight of statutory bodies. When those laws, or the way they are enforced, are challenged, these disputes end up initially before an Administrative Tribunal rather than the Courts. Decisions made by those tribunals are often subject to judicial review or appeal.

Boughton Law has advised clients on, and appeared before many provincial and federal administrative tribunals. These include the British Columbia Securities Commission, the Environmental Appeal Board, the Human Rights Tribunal, the Labour Relations Board, the Real Estate Board, the BC Utilities Commission, and the Canadian Transportation Agency.

Ensuring the fair, regulated operation of public services is something that we care about. We have over 20 years of experience in matters involving the regulation of public utilities in the energy sector, and extensive experience involving the regulation of ICBC insurance rates.
