Doing business in Canada and around the world requires a comprehensive understanding of local competition, consumer protection and foreign investment laws.
Fasken’s highly ranked Competition, Marketing & Foreign Investment group helps clients navigate Canada's competition, consumer protection and foreign investment law landscape. We work closely with clients and their US counsel to ensure cross-border coordination, strategy and efficiency. Our very experienced team consists of many members who have served as former enforcers at the highest level (including a former Commissioner of Competition). Our practitioners advise on all aspects of competition, consumer protection and foreign investment law, including mergers, criminal cartel matters, advertising and marketing practices, abuse of dominance and other reviewable practices. We also represent parties in criminal and civil investigations, litigated proceedings before Canada’s Competition Tribunal and class action litigation. Our team has represented and continues to represent clients in many of Canada’s most significant competition, consumer protection, and foreign investment matters.
Clients have described our Competition, Marketing & Foreign Investment group as comprising “incredibly smart, knowledgeable and personable people who are a joy to work with even when tension is high and situations are stressful” and having a team that is “very strong due to the diversity of experience it brings to the table, including substantial experience working at the Competition Bureau and the Department of Justice litigating competition cases” (Legal 500 Canada). As highlighted in Chambers Global, Fasken clients note that “service delivery, accuracy of advice, attention to detail, responsiveness and fees” are a few of the reasons they choose us as their trusted advisor. In Chambers Canada, clients highlighted that “the firm has good relationships with the authorities, which is great when dealing with cartel-related matters”.
Our practitioners are active in national and international organizations including the Canadian Bar Association (CBA), the American Bar Association (ABA), the International Bar Association (IBA), the International Competition Network (ICN), and the OECD. They are also active thought leaders who write, teach and regularly comment on emerging trends and developments around the world, including via Fasken’s Competition Chronicle.
