McCarthy Tétrault LLP


McCarthy Tétrault has one of the leading competition and foreign investment review practices in Canada. We help clients cut through the complex maze of issues to avoid problems and minimise risks and defend their interests with vigour.

Our services flow into two main streams:

  • Advice – We advise on private as well as public mergers and acquisitions, structuring deals, business practices and day-to-day compliance matters. We help clients understand the criminal and non-criminal provisions in the Competition Act, and develop compliance programmes to ensure they understand how to not breach the law.
  • Litigation – Our competition litigators are among the most reputed in the country. We represent our clients in civil or criminal proceedings before the Competition Tribunal (the adjudicative body that oversees much of the enforcement of the statute), or the courts.

Clients in every sector place us among the top law firms in this area because:

  • We invest in knowing their business through and through: their company, products and services, business practices, competitors, geographic and product markets, international trading constraints, tariff or non-tariff protection, and free trade issues.
  • We’ve specialised in this area for many years and witnessed the significant changes brought to Canadian competition and foreign investment review law.
  • We regularly work on large national and international mergers and acquisitions, as well as on major cartel investigations.
  • We have some of the world’s best practitioners in this field. Two have chaired the National Competition Law Section of the Canadian Bar Association. Our national strength in this field puts us at the top of all ranking tables.
  • We integrate exceptional expertise across the firm in all areas of law and in Canada’s two legal systems, civil and common law, to address any client issue.
