The CBA Competition Law Section's Competition Litigation Committee and Criminal Matters Committee, and the ABA Section of Antitrust Law Distribution and Franchising Committee present:

Future of Buy-Side Agreements

January 20, 2021 | 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM Eastern
Online (Zoom)


In November 2020, the Competition Bureau released new guidelines regarding buy-side agreements, including no-poach and wage-fixing agreements, which clarified the Bureau’s position that such agreements are not subject to criminal sanctions under section 45 of the Competition Act. This panel will discuss the implication of the Bureau’s statement for the future of buy-side agreements in Canada, as well as any lessons from recent enforcement experience in the U.S.
