Subscribe Fasken


Fasken has led major developments in entertainment and media law in Canada and around the world for more than three decades. We represent some of the biggest names in the industry – including many of the largest multinational telecommunications, broadcasting and internet companies and organizations. We act for clients before various administrative tribunals including the CRTC and the Copyright Board.


Consumers access media from multiple devices and from anywhere in the world. We’ve structured cross-border deals to expand our clients’ digital licencing and distribution capacity, but also to protect their interests if circumstances change.


Apart from providing legal and strategic advice on daily business activities such as contracts, copyright and commercial transactions, we also represent entertainment interest groups in discussions with national and international bodies.


We can represent your interests before courts and specialized tribunals. We have extensive experience and expertise in preparing broadcasting and telecommunications licence applications, and other regulatory submissions, participating in regulatory policy proceedings, filing or opposing copyright tariffs, and filing or opposing trademark applications.


Fasken represents creative leaders such as Cirque du Soleil and Ubisoft and corporations such as Québecor Media, Rogers Communications, Google and AT&T.
