Staying Ahead of the Curve: Advanced Topics in Mergers and Joint Ventures
April 29 & 30, 2021

Evaluation of mergers and other forms of collaboration continues to be a top enforcement priority of the Commissioner of Competition, albeit one that is rapidly evolving.  The Competition Bureau is making concerted efforts to uncover and review non-notifiable transactions, has established lengthy timelines for reviews of efficiency claims, and continues to use its investigative powers to gather vast information and data. At the same time, the repositioning of many industries and the acceleration of the digitization of the economy caused by the COVID-19 pandemic have made it increasingly important to conduct and conclude merger reviews in an efficient and timely manner. What are the best practices in merger reviews? Where are the major pitfalls and risks for clients undertaking a complex merger? How could merger reviews be conducted more expeditiously in today’s economic environment?

 Join leading experts to discuss these topical issues on the law, policy and practice of mergers and joint ventures.
