9:05 - 10:30 am: “Hot Topics” IN Competition/Antitrust
Panellist: Calvin S. Goldman, Q.C., Partner, Goodmans LLP
The past year has been particularly interesting for practitioners, with Bureau initiatives spanning a range of diverse topics, each with considerable impact on the practice of competition law in Canada. For example, earlier this year, new Intellectual Property Enforcement Guidelines (IPEGs) were released reflecting the Bureau’s attempt to modernize its approach to IP issues in competition law; the Bureau appears to be increasingly process driven and focused on data requests in the context of merger reviews, which has had, and could continue to have an impact on the merger review process; and recent case law arguable has conferred upon the Commissioner of Competition an unprecedented amount of enforcement discretion – especially compared to his counterparts in other jurisdictions. Join competition law experts from Canada and the United States for a comparative discussion on these and other hot topics in competition law.
