For multinational corporations, locating business interests in a new region can be akin to jumping into unknown waters. Canadian corporations operating on foreign soil, especially in newly industrialized countries, must understand how evolving political systems, significant events, and different cultural norms can have a major impact on their overseas operations or investments.
We have deep experience identifying micro risk factors involved in specific multinational projects and developing risk mitigation strategies. We have worked on behalf of Canadian corporations in the United States, the Middle East, the Maghreb region of Africa and the Caribbean to analyze how political change can impact specific investments, projects or industries. Through this experience, we provide our clients with strategic advice on how best to mitigate risk while balancing opportunities for growth. When applicable, we can also serve as a sophisticated buyer and manager of in-country public affairs services on behalf of our clients.
