McMillan LLP

14 January 2010

The team at McMillan LLP boasts one of the most well-respected private litigation practices in the country, which includes Who’s Who nominees A Neil Campbell and D Martin Low QC. “We think we have the pre-eminent cartel follow-on practice in Canada,” Campbell says.

Low’s practice intersects often with that of David Kent, a partner at McMillan who is widely considered one of the most prominent and experienced antitrust litigators in the country. Kent’s case roster includes defending private actions in the vitamins, DRAM, linerboard, copper and graphite electrodes markets, among others. Plus, the firm says it is tied up in several other class actions that have yet to be made public, both in Toronto and other regions (such as Quebec and British Columbia).

The practice’s long-time leader, J William Rowley QC, stepped away from the partnership this year to become counsel and focus on his arbitration practice. Campbell now leads the practice. The team has advised Air France/KLM and Hersheys in cartel investigations over the past year, and has helped guide Live Nation throught its tie-up with Ticketmaster.
