Political Law

Subscribe Fasken


We have the largest Canadian legal team devoted to political law. We’re widely recognized as leaders, practicing on behalf of domestic and foreign corporations, organizations, public office holders, political parties, candidates and individuals.

Combining deep legal expertise with knowledge of  regulatory enforcement, we provide practical and useful guidance to clients.


Fasken assists with lobbyist registration, lobbying compliance and navigating rules on hospitality and gifts. We also respond to enforcement proceedings, conduct due diligence audits, develop corporate policies and assess public-sector conflicts of interest on our clients’ behalf.


In employment matters, we advise corporate clients on hiring former government officials, determining how “revolving-door” and other rules might apply. We also facilitate individual applications for waivers, reductions and exemptions for former government officials.


Our team includes a former Chief of Staff to the Prime Minister of Canada who now serves as the integrity commissioner for 20 municipalities, and the author of Canada’s leading legal text on the law of lobbying.

Be confident. Know the rules and navigate any recent changes before you act.
