Business Law London - Our team of Antitrust and Competition, we give suggestion in all aspects of antitrust litigation and competition regulation during business acquisitions, restructuring and mergers. These transactions are under constant government examination from regulators. Our professional business law counsel assists companies to stay true to their core objectives while keeping within regulations.
Amongst our clients are both international and national companies, whom we represented nationally before the Competition Bureau, in the courts and in the Competition Tribunal, and worldwide before different competition review authorities. Professional counsel is provided on different antitrust issues: complex merger transactions, international cartel prosecutions, and predatory practices involving marketing, distribution and pricing. Our practice is varied, involving representation of distributors, international and national 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 client√?¬®le and have dealt with both criminal and civil problems.
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 along with competition counsel across the globe, allowing us to lead negotiations and advocate competition issues efficiently on behalf of clients whose interests cross multiple jurisdictions.
We often provide clients with regular advice concerning business transactions to prevent antitrust allegations. We offer a multi-disciplinary team of experts to design workable solutions and compliance programs so as to lessen the risk of our clients facing anti-competitive behavior matters. Business practices and regulatory compliance problems are more and more 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 problems like for instance price fixing; minimum advertised pricing programs; promotional allowances and rebates; suggested retail prices. We have experience in distribution and marketing disputes involving abuse of dominance, territorial restrictions and exclusive relationships. Many of these concerns have sparked a significant increase in class litigation. Our litigators have a wide range of experience in class action litigation.
