Adam Chamberlain, who specializes in environmental law, is joining Gowling WLG's Toronto practice as a partner.

Chamberlain has spent a considerable amount of time working in Canada's North, and is qualified to practise in Nunavut, Yukon and the Northwest Territories, as well as Ontario. He has a focus on energy law and has advised clients about regulatory frameworks that govern natural resources and infrastructure projects (including energy, mining and wastewater facilities). Chamberlain has expertise in Indigenous law and has frequently been involved in issues involving Indigenous participation in natural resources and infrastructure development matters, including with respect to the duty to consult and accommodate.

He is certified as a specialist in environmental law by the Law Society of Upper Canada, and in that capacity, he has guided clients through environmental assessments, litigation surrounding environmental prosecutions, environmental aspects of corporate transactions and business and regulatory risks related to climate change and the emission of greenhouse gases.

“Adam has an accomplished track record of ensuring important projects come to fruition in a responsible, consultative and transparent manner,” said Peter Lukasiewicz, CEO of Gowling WLG Canada. “His intricate understanding of environmental regulatory regimes and deep professional ties in Canada’s territories will be strong assets for our current and future clients alike."
