Last Updated: January 19 2017

Toronto (January 13, 2017) — Borden Ladner Gervais LLP (BLG) is pleased to announce it has been ranked as a recommended firm in the 2017 edition of the Global Competition Review's GCR 100.

The GCR 100 also recognized Robert S. Russell and Subrata Bhattacharjee, the chair and vice-chair of BLG's Competition and Foreign Investment Review Group respectively, and noted the recent addition of partner Davit Akman in its analysis of the firm. The guide highlighted the team's recent successes for major clients, including the precedent-setting pretrial victory for British Airways in 2015, in which an Ontario Superior Court of Justice ruling reduced the size of the plaintiff class. The team's work defending Deutsche Bank in Canadian competition class action proceedings regarding alleged collusion to set foreign exchange rates and acting for Loblaw in the Canadian Competition Bureau's high-profile abuse of dominance investigation were also noted.
