OVERVIEW & EXPERTISE

 

Lobbying is an important part of the political decision-making process and, as a result, has become increasingly regulated. Many communications with governments must be disclosed in public registries and are subject to conflict of interest rules. These rules can apply to interactions that do not intuitively fall within the scope of traditional lobbying.

Blakes lawyers have extensive experience with the federal, provincial and municipal lobbying legislation in Canada. We also have expertise in political financing, election advertising and the requirements for corporations seeking to enter into commercial transactions with political parties.

We have advised many clients and lawyers on matters relating to this legislation and the related regulatory guidance. We act for corporations, financial institutions, organizations, associations and individual consultant lobbyists on complex issues relating to the applicability of lobbying and election laws, compliance and registrations. When questions of violations arise, our lawyers are there to advise as well as assist clients in preparing for and responding to inquiries and investigations.
