Toronto, December 29, 2006 − McCarthy Tétrault boosted its leading Competition Law practice this week with the addition of two new equity partners, Randy Hughes and Don Houston.
"The addition of Randy and Don to our Competition Group in Toronto further strengthens our firm, in particular the intersection of our Business Law and Litigation practices and positions us as the top Competition Law practice in Canada" said Iain Scott, McCarthy Tétrault’s Chair and CEO. "Their arrival will add to the existing strength of our many colleagues who practise in the Competition area, some exclusively, including our partners Yves Bériault, Oliver Borgers, Yves Comtois, Simon Potter, and Madeleine Renaud.

They do advisory work in M&A transactions, significant work in relation to international and domestic cartel and related investigations by the Competition Bureau, and other proceedings before the Competition Tribunal and the Courts."
