Who's Who Legal Competition: Lawyers

Katherine Kay is a litigation partner and head of the firm’s competition litigation practice. Katherine is known as a dynamic and highly effective courtroom advocate with a razor-sharp strategic approach. She is a first call for “bet the farm” litigation and crisis management situations, often working very closely with counsel in the United States, Europe and other jurisdictions, as well as quarterbacking internal and external investigations.

Katherine’s practice concentrates on complex commercial litigation often involving the interplay between regulatory, civil and criminal law regimes, and across multiple jurisdictions. Areas of focus include competition, product liability, class actions, international law, securities, corruption and other white-collar cases. Her competition litigation practice includes a broad range of cases dealing with criminal defence work, class and other civil actions, mergers, abuse of dominance and other reviewable matters before the Competition Tribunal.

Katherine is described in Chambers Canada as having “a strategic sense as well as a level of practicality that is rare even among excellent lawyers" and “an encyclopaedic knowledge of the antitrust practice in Canada”, and in Chambers Global as “virtually insurmountable in the area of competition litigation”. She is also described by Global Competition Review as "arguably the best competition litigator Canada has to offer". She has multiple recognitions including being named Benchmark Canada's Competition Litigator of the Year (2014, 2016, 2018 and 2019), and is consistently featured in Best Lawyers in CanadaLexpert/American Lawyer's Guide to the Leading 500 Lawyers in CanadaCanadian Legal Lexpert DirectoryLexpert's Guide to the Leading US/Canada Cross-border Litigation Lawyers in CanadaChambers GlobalChambers CanadaThe Legal 500: Canada and Benchmark Canada.
