Max Faille is a partner in Gowling WLG’s Vancouver office, practising in Indigenous law, public law and general litigation. Max currently serves as national leader of Gowling WLG’s Indigenous Law Group. His clients consist of First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities across Canada, as well as private sector interests seeking to do business with Indigenous communities. In addition to legal representation in the courts and in negotiations, Max regularly provides advice on matters of Aboriginal and treaty rights, First Nation taxation, self-government, Aboriginal consultation and accommodation, Impact and Benefit Agreements, and Aboriginal economic development. He represented the Assembly of First Nations in the landmark Bastien and Dube cases in the Supreme Court of Canada that has breathed new life into First Nation tax immunity.
