Stikeman Elliott LLP

17 January 2011

The team at Stikeman Elliott LLP lost four members of its competition practice over the past few years, but the firm and its rivals say its practice and ability remain among the strongest in the country. "We're maybe a little leaner and meaner," says Who's Who nominee Shawn C D Neylan. Along with Neylan, the firm also features Who's Who nominees Lawson A W Hunter, Susan M Hutton and Katherine L Kay.

Recently, the firm has acted for Air Canada in the air cargo matter, the Canadian Real Estate Association in one of the bureau's rare abuse of dominance cases, Infineon in the DRAM class action, Gordon Foods in a class action involving franchise issues, and others. On the merger side, the team has acted for Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan in its potential takeover by BHP Billiton, Ticketmaster in its tie-up with rival LiveNation, Coca-Cola Enterprises in the sale of its bottling operations to Coca-Cola, United in its high-profile merger with Continental and the Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan in its deal to sell CTVglobemedia to Bell Canada.
