Fasken Martineau's team of lawyers in Ottawa offers broad expertise and practises extensively in the areas of business, communications, labour and employment, litigation, trade, anti-bribery and corruption, competition, copyright, accountability and ethics law, and in the area of government relations. We also engage in a number of related areas of practice, including constitutional and administrative law, human rights, food and drug regulation, official language rights and access to information and privacy.

Much of the expertise of our Ottawa office draws on its presence in the national capital, and our knowledge and experience in the law and policy processes of the Canadian federal government and various regulatory agencies.

In addition to our local expertise, the Ottawa office provides our clients with seamless access to the broad range of professional services that Fasken Martineau offers on a national and international basis.

Our Ottawa office joined Fasken Martineau in 2007 in a merger with a top-rate communications, business and trade law firm in Ottawa. Today the growing Ottawa office is home to 28 lawyers — roughly half are ranked as leading practitioners by Chambers Global, Lexpert, The Best Lawyers in Canada and other prestigious publications — and an efficient team of support staff.

We are just steps away from the Federal Court and Parliament Hill in the downtown core. Our office is also a short walk to the Supreme Court of Canada and to many government offices and embassies.
