Administrative Law

Administrative Law regulates the actions of government or public officials or bodies.

The Tayor MacLellan Cochrane Administrative Law Team provides advice and representation to those who require assistance regarding any decisions made by government officials or by any Boards, Tribunals, or Regulatory Agencies. This includes Appeals and Judicial Review of administrative decisions, defending clients, and assisting clients with complaints.
