Canada

The three-partner antitrust team at Heenan Blaikie, led by Who’s Who Legalnominee Subrata Bhattacharjee, is another Canadian practice that more than holds its own in securing work in major cartel and merger matters. While Bhattacharjee and the rest of the competition group primarily handle merger and advisory work, they also instruct a seven-partner litigation practice active for clients in criminal cartel investigations and civil class actions. In those matters, the team has acted for BMW in the car imports case, Korean Air in the air cargo and passenger litigations, Hitachi LG in the optical disk drive case, as well as companies involved in the car parts and Libor investigations. This year, Heenan secured a notable victory for Samsung in the lithium batteries and smart card chip proceedings. On the merger side, the firm advises Arris on the Canadian aspects of its C$2.4 billion acquisition of Motorola Home from Google, and TORC Oil and Gas in its C$510 million asset acquisition from Pengrowth Energy. Major advisory clients include American Express, Deutsche Bank, Netflix, Philip Morris, Warner Brothers and Lionsgate, among others.
