Canada's New Competition Laws for Mergers and Joint Ventures - What You Need to Know

Recent sweeping changes to competition laws in Canada, including the very recent Federal Court of Appeal decision in the CCS/Complete merger case, have raised complex challenges for lawyers and companies engaged in mergers and joint ventures. The Competition Bureau has new powers, new theories, and a host of new tools to review, restructure and challenge these business arrangements.

Today more than ever, it is critical:
  • To have a solid understanding of this complex area
  • To have insights into the strategies available to navigate transactions through the Competition Bureau
  • To be able to structure business arrangements to comply with the competition laws
Written in plain language by leading legal experts on competition law, this book features a foreword by The Honourable Paul S. Crampton, Chief Justice of the Federal Court, who notes that the book provides "…a new benchmark for a treatise on merger review in Canada," which "builds and significantly expands upon the prior state-of-the-art."

The book also features a chapter by Margaret Sanderson, one of Canada's leading economists in the area of antitrust economics, on the economic tools most frequently used by the Canadian Competition Bureau.

This is the only book devoted solely to merger review and joint ventures under competition laws in Canada. From an insider's perspective, the book covers all aspects of merger review, including pre-merger planning and merger notification, responding to "second requests", claims of privilege, market definition, economic analysis, remedies and more.
