Our Commitment to the Communities We Serve

The team at Rana Law focuses exclusively on Aboriginal law, representing First Nations in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan.

We believe that collaboration is the key to success. We work closely with our clients to understand their challenges and provide the most effective strategies for resolving them. First Nations often face complex land and resource issues in relation to their reserve lands and traditional territories. In many cases, they require more than just legal advice; they need advice from other professionals, including forest ecologists, energy consultants, geologists and aquatic resource planners. At Rana Law, we assemble and lead effective teams of top professional advisors to assist us in providing the best level of service to First Nations that are addressing land and resource issues. This allows us to provide our clients with the best advice and information, so that they can make informed and effective decisions regarding the use, management and protection of their reserve lands and traditional territories.

Through legal, negotiation and advisory services, we are able to assist First Nations in managing a wide variety of issues facing their communities. We value the long-standing working relationships we have developed in the communities we represent, and are dedicated to delivering the exceptional service that has earned us our reputation.

Our Location

Our offices are located in the historic Lorraine Building in Calgary's Beltline district. Built in 1913 by Dr. Omer Patrick, the Lorraine was initially an apartment building in the residential estate district. Read More »

Located in an exclusive neighbourhood, the Lorraine’s tenants included Senator James Lougheed, Senator Patrick Burns, and William Roper Hull. Evelyn Albright – the second female lawyer in Alberta – was also one of the building’s residents during the early years of the First World War. The Lorraine served as an apartment building until January 1998, when it was damaged by a disastrous fire. Due to its historical significance to the city, as well as its prime location, the Lorraine was purchased by the Heritage Property Corporation and restored as a commercial building. In 2002, the Lorraine was designated as a Provincial Historic Resource.

Today, the Lorraine is home to several businesses, including Rana Law. We are proud to be a part of this historic Calgary institution.
