Business Law Richmond - Our team of Antitrust and Competition, we offer recommendation in all aspects of antitrust litigation and competition regulation during business acquisitions, restructuring and mergers. These transactions are under constant government scrutiny from regulators. Our expert 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 worldwide before different competition review authorities. Professional counsel is given on different antitrust problems: international cartel prosecutions, complex merger transactions, and predatory practices involving distribution, pricing and marketing. Our practice is diverse, involving representation of distributors, national and international corporations, company officers and directors and manufacturers involved in the energy, financial, electronics, telecommunications, textile and pipeline sectors. We have secured negotiated resolutions together with the Competition Bureau for our clients and have handled both civil and criminal concerns.
Regulatory authorities abroad and here have been making merger review a major focus. Clients retain us to conduct pre-merger notification of transactions and to coordinate pre-merger strategy across jurisdictions. We work often along with competition counsel across the world, allowing us to advocate competition issues and lead negotiations efficiently on behalf of clients whose interests cross numerous jurisdictions.
In order to prevent antitrust allegations, we regularly provide clients with regular advice. Our teams of experts provide multi-disciplinary advice and service by crafting workable solutions and compliance programs. These will help lessen the risk of our clients facing anti-competitive behavior issues. Business practices and regulatory compliance issues 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 customers and competitors: pricing policy problems like for instance price fixing; minimum advertised pricing programs; suggested resale prices; promotional allowances and rebates. We have skill in distribution and marketing disputes involving exclusive relationships, abuse of dominance and territorial restrictions. Many of these issues have sparked a large increase in class litigation. Our litigators have a wide range of skill in class action litigation.
