Business Law Red Deer - Our team of Competition and Antitrust, we offer advice in all aspects of competition regulation and antitrust litigation during business acquisitions, restructuring and mergers. These transactions are under constant government inspection from regulators. Our expert business law counsel helps 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 the Competition Tribunal, in all levels of the courts, and internationally before several 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 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 with the Competition Bureau for our client√?¬®le and have dealt with both criminal and civil matters.
Regulatory authorities here and abroad 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 regularly with competition counsel all over the globe, allowing us to advocate competition problems and lead negotiations successfully on behalf of clients whose interests cross multiple jurisdictions.
So as to avoid antitrust allegations, we frequently provide clients with routine advice. Our teams of experts provide multi-disciplinary advice and service by crafting workable solutions and compliance programs. These would help lessen the risk of our clients facing anti-competitive behavior issues. Regulatory compliance matters and business practices are more and more coming under quasi-criminal and criminal investigation by competition regulators. We act on behalf of clients in the subsequent types of disputes involving relationships with competitors and customers: pricing policy problems such as price fixing; minimum advertised pricing programs; promotional allowances and rebates; suggested retail prices. We have skill in distribution and marketing disputes involving abuse of dominance, territorial restrictions and exclusive relationships. A lot of these concerns have sparked a large increase in class litigation. Our litigators have a wide range of experience in class action litigation.
