The Fasken Competition, Marketing & Foreign Investment Law group is widely acknowledged as one of the leading practices in Canada and South Africa.
Our integrated team advises on all aspects of competition law, marketing and foreign investment law and continues to be involved in many of the most significant competition law, marketing and foreign investment matters in Canada and South Africa. Fasken is frequently retained by domestic and international companies and by international law firms to provide strategic counsel and representation in merger reviews, foreign investment and national security reviews, criminal cartel matters, advertising and marketing and consumer protection practices, abuse of dominance and other competition matters. Our team includes more former enforcers than any other Canadian law firm, including the most recent former Commissioner of Competition, former Department of Justice prosecutors, former Competition Bureau senior officials and a former national security advisor. With this vast experience and insight, we effectively assesses regulatory risk at an early stage and navigate strategies to secure regulatory clearance or alleviate the need for regulatory enforcement. Where necessary, our team vigorously and effectively defends regulatory enforcement and litigation.
Fasken regularly acts for clients on multi-jurisdictional transactions and criminal and civil investigations where coordination among counsel and agencies around the world is of particular importance. We also consistently represent clients in leading competition litigation matters, including class proceedings, abuse of dominance, deceptive marketing and consumer protection practices and contentious mergers. Our team has extensive trial and appellate experience in competition matters, having appeared as counsel before competition tribunals and all levels of courts in Canada and South Africa.
