Such transactions are under constant scrutiny by government regulators. Our expert business law counsel helps companies to stay true to their core objectives while keeping within regulations.
Amongst our clients are both international and national businesses, whom we represented nationally before the Competition Bureau, in the courts and in the Competition Tribunal, and globally before various competition review authorities. Expert counsel is given on various antitrust problems: international cartel prosecutions, complex merger transactions, and predatory practices involving marketing, distribution and pricing. Our practice is varied, involving representation of national and international corporations, company officers and directors, manufacturers and distributors involved in the energy, financial, electronics, pipeline, telecommunications, and textile sectors. We have secured negotiated resolutions with the Competition Bureau for our clientèle and have dealt with both civil and criminal issues.
Merger reviews have been a major focus of regulatory authorities both abroad and here. A lot of the clients that retain our services, ask us to help coordinate pre-merger strategy and conduct pre-merger notification of transactions across jurisdictions. We work regularly with competition counsel across the globe, allowing us to advocate competition problems and lead negotiations effectively on behalf of clients whose interests cross numerous jurisdictions.
To avoid antitrust allegations, we frequently provide clients with regular advice. Our teams of professionals provide multi-disciplinary service and advice by crafting workable solutions and compliance programs. These would help reduce the risk of our clients facing anti-competitive behavior problems. Regulatory compliance matters and business practices are more and more coming under quasi-criminal and criminal investigation by competition regulators.

We have experience in distribution and marketing disputes involving abuse of dominance, territorial restrictions and exclusive relationships. Many of these concerns have sparked a large increase in class litigation. Our litigators have various experience in class action litigation.
