Nico McKay
Lawyer (he/him)

A commitment to justice and principled advocacy drew me to the study of law. Throughout law school I immersed myself in the study of Aboriginal and Indigenous law under leading Indigenous scholars and lawyers. I am dedicated to contributing to the ongoing work of decolonization through critical self-reflection and humble service to work that substantively advances Indigenous rights.

My practice focuses on litigation and negotiation in the areas of Aboriginal, environmental and constitutional law. It is an honour to serve our clients’ vital work upholding their inherent and constitutionally protected title, rights and Treaty rights and revitalizing their laws and governance processes.

Outside of work I enjoy walking in the woods with my family, sailing and reading legal biographies. I was raised on unceded Musqueam, Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh and Stó:lō Territory and am of Irish, French and English descent.
