Business Law Prince George - Our team of Competition and Antitrust, we offer suggestion in all aspects of competition regulation and antitrust litigation during company restructurings, mergers, and acquisitions. These transactions are under constant government inspection from regulators. Our skilled business law counsel helps businesses to stay true to their core objectives while keeping within regulations.
Amongst our clients are both national and international companies, whom we represented nationally before the Competition Bureau, in the Competition Tribunal and in the courts, and internationally before several competition review authorities. Professional counsel is offered on various antitrust issues: complex merger transactions, international cartel prosecutions, and predatory practices involving distribution, pricing and marketing. Our practice is varied, involving representation of company officers and directors, manufacturers, distributors and international and national corporations involved in the financial, electronics, energy, textile, pipeline and telecommunications sectors. We have secured negotiated resolutions along with the Competition Bureau for our clients and have handled both civil and criminal concerns.
Merger reviews have been a major focus of regulatory authorities both here and abroad. A lot of the clients which retain our services, ask us to help coordinate pre-merger strategy and conduct pre-merger notification of transactions across jurisdictions. We work regularly along with competition counsel all over the world, enabling us to lead negotiations and advocate competition matters efficiently on behalf of clients whose interests cross multiple jurisdictions.
We often offer clients with routine recommendation on business transactions in order to prevent antitrust allegations. We provide a multi-disciplinary team of experts to design compliance programs and workable solutions so as to reduce the risk of our clients facing anti-competitive behavior matters. 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 types of disputes involving relationships with competitors and customers: pricing policy issues such as minimum advertised pricing programs; price fixing; promotional allowances and rebates; suggested retail prices. We have experience in marketing and distribution disputes involving exclusive relationships, abuse of dominance and territorial restrictions. A lot of these issues have sparked a substantial increase in class litigation. Our litigators have various knowledge in class action litigation.
