Torys "excels both in M&A-related matters and competition litigation," with a "longstanding reputation in the field," says Chambers Global 2011. Torys "retains a substantial share of the market, especially in the litigation space, where it has carved out a considerable niche for itself." Sources say the team is "great in transactions and mergers work within the competition field."

Work highlights include advising K+S on the Canadian competition law aspects of its acquisition of Morton International from Rohm and Haas / Dow Chemical, and advising Quad/Graphics on competition/antitrust and foreign investment reviews related to its US$1.4 billion acquisition of Worldcolor.

  • John Laskin is widely regarded as "a really good competition litigator." He is a valued adviser of clients such as Panasonic and United Airlines.
  • Jay Holsten is a "distinguished practitioner in the mergers side." His reputation comes from "the superb, insightful advice he offers, and the depth of his expertise."
  • Philip Mohtadi , who is ranked in the competition/antitrust and Investment Canada categories, handles mergers and foreign investment reviews, in which areas "he stands out for his expert knowledge."
  • Omar Wakil wins praise for his experience and technical expertise, and "is quickly making a name for himself for his cartel work and the manner with which he handles any abuse of dominance claims."
