Back by popular demand! Join the Young Lawyers and Mergers Committees to discuss the mechanics of drafting an ARC request letter and defining relevant markets. Our experienced panelists will speak to:

  • the role of a young lawyer from drafting client information requests to submitting the ARC request letter to the MINU;
  • the information and advocacy necessary to make your ARC request letter effective for the Competition Bureau and to facilitate clearance; and
  • the basic principles of identifying and defining relevant product and geographic markets.

You will leave the panel prepared to draft your best ARC request letters yet.
