These transactions are under constant government scrutiny from regulators. Our skilled business law counsel assists businesses to stay true to their core objectives while keeping within regulations.
We represent lots of international and domestic clients, representing them nationally before the Competition Bureau, in all levels of the court, in the Competition Tribunal, and internationally before different competition review authorities. Expert counsel is given on a wide range of antitrust matters: international cartel prosecutions, complex merger transactions, and predatory practices involving pricing, marketing, and distribution. Our practice is diverse, involving representation of international and national corporations, company officers and directors, manufacturers and distributors involved in the electronics, energy, financial, telecommunications, textile and pipeline sectors. We have secured negotiated resolutions along with the Competition Bureau for our client√?¬®le and have dealt with both civil and criminal problems.
Merger reviews have been a major focus of regulatory authorities both abroad and here. Many of the clients that retain our services, ask us to help conduct pre-merger notification of transactions and coordinate pre-merger strategy across jurisdictions. We work regularly with competition counsel all over the world, enabling us to lead negotiations and advocate competition problems effectively on behalf of clients whose interests cross numerous jurisdictions.
In order to prevent antitrust allegations, we often provide clients with routine advice. Our teams of professionals provide multi-disciplinary service and advice by crafting workable solutions and compliance programs. These will help reduce the risk of our clients facing anti-competitive behavior problems. Business practices and regulatory compliance issues are increasingly coming under criminal and quasi-criminal investigation by competition regulators. We act on behalf of clients in the following kinds of disputes involving relationships with customers and competitors: pricing policy problems like for instance price fixing; minimum advertised pricing programs; suggested resale prices; promotional allowances and rebates. We have experience in marketing and distribution disputes involving exclusive relationships, abuse of dominance and territorial restrictions. A lot of these problems have sparked a significant increase in class litigation. Our litigators have a wide range of skill in class action litigation.
