Borden Ladner Gervais LLP 

10 January 2017

Robert S Russell leads the competition team at BORDEN LADNER GERVAIS, Canada’s largest law firm. The practice is active in defending clients in several class actions, particularly in regard to alleged price-fixing of capacitors and air cargo services. The firm secured a precedent-setting pretrial victory in 2015 for British Airways, one of the three remaining defendants in the cargo class action, when an Ontario Superior Court of Justice ruling reduced the size of the plaintiff class. Highly regarded partner Subrata Bhattacharjee leads the team defending Deutsche Bank in Canadian competition class action proceedings alleging that 15 global banks colluded to set foreign exchange rates. The firm is also acting for Loblaw in the bureau’s high-profile abuse of dominance investigation. Partner Davit Akman joined the firm in January 2016.
