Gowlings advises a wide range of clients across Canada, including all levels of government and its agencies, trade and professional associations, non-governmental agencies, foreign governments, small and global companies, Crown corporations, utilities, developers and educational institutions such as schools and universities. With expertise in areas such as lobbying, government procurement, energy and infrastructure, international trade, transportation and immigration, we provide the perfect mix of services for international companies looking to enter the Canadian market.

Our professionals also serve First Nations and clients in industries such as food and agriculture, environment and cleantech, aerospace and defence, technology and manufacturing. We represent the interests of our clients before parliamentary committees, government task forces, and at all levels of federal and provincial courts.


Gowlings practitioners understand government from the inside out, as many of them have held elected office, senior government positions or contributed to the development of policy, legislation and regulatory regimes. Our extensive network of government contacts is a key advantage for industry stakeholders in presenting their concerns to decision makers. The Firm also advises on lobbying compliance and ethical obligations relating to gifts and hospitality, and provides guidance on issues relating to conflict of interest at the federal, provincial and municipal levels.
