Matt Janssen
Lawyer (he/him)

My interest in advocating for Indigenous Peoples was enriched throughout my studies at the University of Victoria law school. I started my legal career at a large national law firm where I gained valuable experience in providing quality legal services. I now feel incredibly fortunate to be able to apply those experiences while representing Indigenous Peoples’ interests at First Peoples Law LLP.

I work closely with clients to help them achieve the economic development goals of their Indigenous communities. I advise clients on a broad range of corporate and commercial matters relating to a variety of industries. I also represent clients in advancing their historical specific claims against the government.

I am a huge hockey fan and I enjoy camping, hiking and mountain biking throughout British Columbia in my free time.
