Competition Law & Trade Practices

Competition law seeks to promote and maintain market competition through the regulation of anti-competitive behaviour. Competition issues generally arise in connection with conduct that may reduce a competitor’s ability to enter or operate in the market.

These laws are becoming increasingly complex, especially as we become a global economy. There are significant ramifications for a company and its officers for overlooking competition law issues when planning and implementing new business models and arrangements, including significant fines or even imprisonment.

We assist clients in identifying strategic and commercial solutions to competition issues and risks that might arise in your commercial transactions and business operations. We also provide clear guidance and compliance advice on consumer laws and consumer protections that govern your business, including business to business transactions.
