Competition Law Live! Critical Lessons Through the Lifecycle of a Criminal Cartel Investigation

**This session has been approved for 1.5 hours of Professionalism credit and up to 1.75 hours of Substantive credit**
Through instruction by demonstration complemented by interactive panel discussions, this mini-cartel workshop will take participants through the lifecycle of an international cartel – from its formation, to detection and dawn raids, to applying for immunity or leniency under the Competition Bureau’s immunity and leniency programs.

Participants will:

  • Watch the formation of a cartel and its eventual detection by internal counsel
  • Participate in a live board of directors emergency meeting to discuss with counsel the consequences of cartel conduct and strategize on managing the legal risk
  • Witness the execution of a dawn raid
  • Observe the operation of the Bureau’s immunity and leniency programs

Through a series of scenarios, and specifically from the perspective of company management and internal counsel, participants will explore the numerous factors to be taken into account in determining whether a company should apply for immunity or leniency in Canada, a decision that must be made quickly and a process that is complex, time-consuming and resource-intensive.

The workshop will be led by members of Osler's Competition and Antitrust team, as well as the following special guests:

  • Martin Guest, Senior Vice-President, General Counsel Canada at Manulife Financial
  • Graham Reynolds QC, Senior Counsel, Regulatory & Internal Investigations HUB, TD Bank Group

This session is open to in-house counsel only and is free of charge, but you must RSVP to attend.
Walk-ins will not be accepted. Please RSVP by Friday, September 11, 2015

In-house counsel must be ACC members or meet ACC membership eligibility - see


The ACC Ontario Chapter has a new “no-show without notice” policy that will come into effect on September 1, 2015. A copy of the policy is below for your reference.




Please note that although we strive to keep ACC Ontario Chapter educational and social events generally free of charge to in-house counsel, when in-house counsel register for an event and then do not attend without notice, it hinders the ability of the Chapter and our sponsors to plan and may result in a waste of food or other resources. Please try to attend events for which you have registered and to provide reasonable advance notice if you know you will be unable to attend. The Chapter will be instituting a two strike, no show without notice policy beginning in September 2015. If a person is twice unable to provide the Chapter with 24 hours’ notice of cancellation for a free event for which he or she registered, a $25 fee will be required upon registering for the next event that is free to other in-house counsel. Upon payment of the $25 fee, the initial two strikes will be reset to zero and this policy will continue to apply. We thank you for your consideration and cooperation.
