Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg LLP

Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg LLP

Professional Notice


Davies’ competition and foreign investment review practice team advises and represents a wide range of international and domestic clients across the full spectrum of competition and foreign investment review matters. We act on many of the highest-profile and complex merger, cartel and monopolisation cases, as well as other cutting-edge competition litigation cases brought under various provisions of the Competition Act. We are also counsel in the vast majority of the competition class action proceedings in Canada and regularly advise clients on advertising, marketing and distribution practices and general competition law compliance. In cooperation with our clients, we develop comprehensive antitrust compliance programmes, including seminars, written materials and online resources.

Led by a former head of Canada’s Competition Bureau, our broad, dynamic team includes a former senior deputy commissioner and head of the mergers branch. Capitalising on our collective experience, we are able to provide valuable insight into the enforcement approach taken by the Bureau. Our team also includes several of the country’s top litigators, who have extensive experience before the Competition Tribunal and at all levels of courts.

Continuously at the forefront of emerging trends and developments in both competition legislation and policy, members of our practice regularly advise various levels of government, industry regulators and international governmental and non-governmental organisations.

We are recognised as a leader by clients, peers and third-party organisations, with more competition lawyers ranked by international ratings agencies than any other Canadian law firm. According to Chambers Canada 2016, the team is known for its “impressive expertise across a range of competition issues”, “powerful litigation capabilities” and “robust transactional expertise.” Eight of our lawyers were profiled, with three in band 1 – more than any other Canadian firm. The team is also consistently awarded Chambers Global’s highest ranking. The Canadian Legal Lexpert Directory has recognised us as a “most frequently recommended” firm, and The Lexpert/American Lawyer Guide to the Leading 500 Lawyers in Canada ranks Davies as the leading firm in corporate transactions in Toronto. Members of the practice are also internationally recognised in Who’s Who Legal: Competition, which lists seven of our lawyers as top practitioners; The Legal 500; Expert Guides’ Guide to the World’s Leading Competition and Antitrust Lawyers; and The Best Lawyers in Canada.
