Fasken has one of Canada's largest automotive groups. Our multi-disciplinary team delivers results for you, both in routine matters and in game-changing litigation, corporate transactions and regulatory matters.

We have an in-depth knowledge of the automotive industry, and the skills and knowledge necessary to guide you on all the legal issues facing OEMS, auto suppliers and dealers, including product liability, class actions, environmental, regulatory, privacy, competition/antitrust, intellectual property, licencing, dealer disputes,  contracts, government relations, international trade, and tax and labour and employment.
We have acted for decades for OEMs, distributors/importers, suppliers, vehicle component manufacturers and dealerships. 
We have extensive experience in dealing with environmental and regulatory matters, and negotiating with regulators and enforcement agencies, with whom we have strong relationships. We routinely work with US counsel handling parallel issues with agencies such as the EPA.
