Kyle Morrow’s practice is focused on political law. He advises clients on their compliance obligations at the municipal, provincial and federal levels of government in the areas of lobbying, conflicts of interest, campaign finance, anti-bribery and corruption, whistleblowing and procurement integrity.

Kyle routinely assists clients in drafting policies, procedures and internal controls, which minimize clients' exposure to potential legal and reputational risks. He also routinely conducts audits and reviews of clients’ existing policies, procedures and internal controls.

In addition to advising clients on their compliance obligations, Kyle also defends clients who are being investigated or prosecuted for political offences under the Criminal Code, the Corruption of Foreign Public Officials Act, the Canada Elections Act, the Conflict of Interest Act and the Lobbying Act. Political offences include bribery, fraud, illegal lobbying, obstruction, influence peddling and breach of trust.

Kyle has assisted clients who are being investigated by the Office of the Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner for Canada, the Office of the Integrity Commissioner for Ontario, the Office of the Ethics Commissioner for Alberta and the Office of the Commissioner of Lobbying for Canada. He has also been exposed to criminal proceedings in the Ontario Court of Justice and the Superior Court of Justice, having previously interned with a prominent criminal defense firm. Kyle has assisted a variety of clients, including industry associations, corporations, parliamentarians, parliamentary staff and lobbyists.

Kyle is interested in public policy and politics. He has volunteered on election campaigns in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, and Nova Scotia. He also previously volunteered in the Office of the Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada. Kyle currently sits on the Fasken LGBTQ2+ Committee, the Fasken Diversity Committee and the Fasken Associates Committee.
