Sponsored by
Charles River Associates

The foundations of competition law are shifting. Vertical mergers, which for decades have largely been seen as inherently pro-competitive and efficiency enhancing, are under increased scrutiny. In the United States, the new FTC chair has risen to prominence in part because of calls for enhanced review of vertical mergers.

At the same time, vertical integration remains a key strategy for businesses to increase efficiency and competitiveness. Entire ecosystems have evolved where start-ups aim to make themselves an attractive target for vertical integration by developing technology or other innovations.

This panel will explore key trends in vertical merger review globally and in Canada and explore the implications of global trends on Canadian businesses and the Canadian economy.
