M&A Transactions must be assessed to determine whether merger control filings or foreign investment reviews are required in Canada or other jurisdictions, and whether such transaction gives rise to any substantive competition law concerns.
Transactions can be structured and presented to maximize the likelihood of clearance by antitrust/competition enforcement agencies. This is especially important in cross-border deals where distinct local rules and norms apply.
Timetables are a crucial component of our work. We organize expert opinions and reports, draft competitive impact submissions and file the necessary applications, as well as coordinate with lawyers in other jurisdictions to meet project deadlines and avoid unnecessary delays.
Our clients include private equity funds, public corporations and private businesses in a wide range of industries.
