overview

Robin advises clients on a broad range of environmental, administrative law and Aboriginal law matters. His clients include mining, energy, infrastructure and forest companies as well as property developers, governments and First Nations. 

Robin has acted in relation to environmental assessments, environmental permitting and compliance, NEB export permits, contaminated sites, Environmental Appeal Board appeals, recycling stewardship plans, Agricultural Land Commission applications, impact and benefit agreements (IBAs), exploration agreements and reconciliation agreement negotiations.  He also previously served as legal counsel to several administrative tribunals and Officers of the Legislature and has provided training to tribunal members and statutory decision-makers in areas as diverse as environmental law, regulated marketing, surface rights and children’s rights.

A significant portion of his practice is advising and representing third parties whose legal rights may be adversely affected by governmental actions, and he has authored numerous publications dealing with Indigenous reconciliation and the rights of third parties.  He is also a frequent media commentator on major project development and Aboriginal law.

Robin brings to his work unique and highly practical insight into how governments work, having previously held the following executive positions in the BC Public Service:

  • Deputy Minister of Energy, Mines & Petroleum Resources
  • Deputy Minister of Energy and Clean Technology.
  • Head of the Environmental Assessment Office,
  • Chair of the Oil & Gas Commission
  • Chief Treaty Negotiator.

Robin has also been retained by public bodies on numerous occasions to address complex legal, regulatory and policy matters - as legal counsel, negotiator, mediator and policy advisor.   He was also integrally involved in the development of some of British Columbia’s most significant environmental legislation, including the Environmental Management Act, the Clean Energy Act and the Public Health Act

Robin served as a law clerk to the BC Court of Appeal and has represented clients in Provincial Court, BC Supreme Court, the BC Court of Appeal, the Federal Court and the Federal Court of Appeal.  He is a Harvard Law School graduate, a former clerk to the BC Court of Appeal and is consistently ranked by his peers in the areas of environmental and Aboriginal law (Chambers Global, Lexpert, Best Lawyers)

Robin is also a member of McMillan Vantage LP.
