Class actions and allegations of competition law violation threaten your company’s ability to conduct daily business, complete mergers and build your brand at home or abroad.
In addition to defending clients in relation to investigations and prosecutions by competition enforcers, our Competition, Marketing & Foreign Investment (CMFI) team represents clients in class proceedings. Our clients include domestic and multinational corporations (MNCs) in a wide array of industries, such as aviation, transportation and logistics, telecommunications, media and entertainment, food, consumer products, chemicals, electronics, automotive, manufacturing, oil and gas and retail.
In Canada, we advise clients in high stakes competition civil and criminal litigation. Our competition lawyers have extensive trial and appellate experience, having appeared before Canada’s Competition Tribunal, superior courts in various provinces, the Federal Court of Canada, the Federal Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada. Members of our team have been involved in many of the leading and precedent setting litigated cases in Canada.
In South Africa, we represent clients before the South African Competition Commission, the Competition Tribunal and the Competition Appeal Court. We have and continue to be involved in cartel defence work in cases before both the Tribunal and Appeal Court involving construction, steel, cement, resins and banking. Our lawyers defend clients’ interests by making comprehensive risk assessments and using reasoned, dynamic and highly effective courtroom advocacy.
