GCR 100 - 17th Edition


10 January 2017


With the addition of Howard Wetston in April 2016, GOODMANS has the only competition team featuring two former commissioners of the Canadian Competition Bureau – although Wetston was tapped for Canada’s Senate as GCR 100 went to press. The firm hired practice leader Calvin S Goldman QC from Blakes back in January 2014. Goldman, along with counsel and long-time bureau mergers chief Richard Annan, recently promoted partner Michael Koch and associate Jesse-Ross Cohen represent the Vancouver Airport Authority in the bureau’s investigation into whether the nonprofit corporation, which is responsible for operating the Vancouver International Airport, abused its dominance. Recently, the firm acted for the National Hockey League in the bureau’s review of the Rogers/NHL broadcasting agreement. On the deal side, Goodmans advised the Mark Anthony Group in its US$350 million sale of certain ready-to-drink, cider and craft brew brands, including Mike’s Hard Lemonade. Goodmans currently acts for Spectra Energy in its tie-up with Enbridge.
