Canadian Competition

The Brattle Group provides economic analysis and expert testimony to private parties and the Competition Bureau under all sections of the Competition Act, including the merger, monopolistic practices, cartel and deceptive marketing practices provisions, and in regards to advocacy initiatives. We have extensive experience working on behalf of the Competition Bureau, and one of our experts is a former T.D. MacDonald Chair of Industrial Economics at the Bureau, where she routinely advised the Commissioner of Competition and other senior representatives on all major enforcement cases and policy initiatives. Brattle economists are able to quickly develop the relevant theories of competitive harm and conduct empirical analyses necessary to assess whether transactions or conduct are likely to result in a substantial lessening or prevention of competition or an adverse effect on competition.
