Business Law Mississauga - We counsel clients in all aspects of antitrust litigation and competition regulation during business mergers, acquisitions and restructuring. Such transactions are under constant scrutiny by government regulators. Our expert business law counsel assists businesses to stay true to their core objectives while keeping within regulations.
Among our clients are both international and national companies, whom we represented nationally before the Competition Bureau, in the Competition Tribunal and in the courts, and worldwide before several competition review authorities. Professional counsel is provided on different antitrust concerns: complex merger transactions, international cartel prosecutions, and predatory practices involving marketing, distribution and pricing. Our practice is diverse, involving representation of distributors, international and national corporations, company officers and directors and manufacturers involved in the financial, electronics, energy, telecommunications, textile and pipeline sectors. We have secured negotiated resolutions along with the Competition Bureau for our clients and have dealt with both criminal and civil concerns.
Regulatory authorities here and abroad have been making merger review a major focus. Clients retain us to coordinate pre-merger strategy and conduct pre-merger notification of transactions across jurisdictions. We work frequently along with competition counsel all around the world, allowing us to advocate competition problems and lead negotiations successfully on behalf of clients whose interests cross several jurisdictions.
In order to prevent antitrust allegations, we frequently provide clients with routine recommendation. Our teams of experts provide multi-disciplinary advice and service by crafting workable solutions and compliance programs. These would help reduce the risk of our clients facing anti-competitive behavior issues. Regulatory compliance problems and business practices are increasingly coming under quasi-criminal and criminal investigation by competition regulators. We act on behalf of clients in the following kinds of disputes involving relationships with competitors and customers: pricing policy matters such as minimum advertised pricing programs; price fixing; promotional rebates and allowances; suggested retail prices. We have experience in distribution and marketing disputes involving territorial restrictions, exclusive relationships, and abuse of dominance. Many of these matters have sparked a large increase in class litigation. Our litigators have a wide range of experience in class action litigation.
