10:45 am - 12:15pm: Session II: Hot Topics in Merger Notification in Canada and Abroad
Moderator: David Rosner, Partner, Goodmans LLP

The rules for notifying mergers, and the practices for how those mergers are notified, differ around the world. Join our expert panel as they bring Canadian and international perspectives on key questions concerning the Canadian merger notification rules as well as notification analysis and best practices in merger notification in the U.S. and Europe. Among other topics, the panel will discuss “affiliation” rules in the notification analysis context (including recent changes to the affiliation rules in Canada’s Competition Act), how merger notification rules apply to joint ventures, and considerations surrounding the types of strategic documents and transaction agreements that may be appended to merger notification forms.

10:45 am - 12:15pm: Session III: Procedural Fairness and Antitrust: A Global Perspective
Speaker: Julie Rosenthal, Partner, Goodmans LLP

Standards of due process and procedural fairness in the investigation and enforcement of competition laws differ around the world, including with regard to principles and practices related to non-discrimination, transparency, timely resolution, confidentiality, conflicts of interest, proper notice, opportunity to defend, access to counsel and judicial review. Panelists will discuss the gold standard in the investigation and enforcement of competition law and whether the Competition Bureau, Competition Tribunal and Canadian courts are meeting the standard.
