Government decisions create risks—and sometimes opportunities—that can have a profound effect on your business operations and success. Fasken Martineau’s Government Relations & Ethics group is an industry leader in strategic advice and advocacy in government relations to all organizations with exposure to the decisions of governments. We help companies understand government decision-making and then develop strategies to effectively manage risks and identify opportunities when they arise.
Our team of more than 25 professionals provides guidance with the growing body of lobbying, election and public conflict of interest law. We represent clients in Canada at the federal, provincial and municipal government levels. Internationally, we assist clients in foreign jurisdictions, with a special focus on African and Latin American countries.
Working at the heart of a leading international business law and litigation firm, our government relations services offer three distinct advantages. First, we are rigorous in understanding of our clients’ business and legal priorities. Second, we provide our services with the highest professional and ethical standards. Third, our client relationships include the discretion and protection of solicitor-client privilege.
We routinely assist Canadian and foreign companies doing business in Canada, and offer the capacity and experience to assist in every province and most municipal governments across the country. We also assist Canadian companies operating internationally to manage challenging political and business environments in some of the world’s riskiest, resource-rich jurisdictions.
