Former Commissioner of Competition John Pecman Joins Fasken

Toronto (Canada) – Fasken announces that John Pecman, the former Commissioner of Competition, leading the Competition Bureau Canada (Bureau) from 2013 to 2018, will join Fasken’s Antitrust/Competition & Marketing group as a Senior Business Advisor in Ontario as of September 1, 2018.

John has worked in every enforcement branch at the Bureau, and has held increasingly senior positions since joining the organization in 1984. Under his leadership, the Bureau’s enforcement actions have preserved competition in a variety of major areas of the Canadian economy, including the automotive, manufacturing, e-commerce, telecommunications and retail sectors. John was also a leader in the international competition community as an executive and liaison for the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Competition Committee and the International Competition Network.

“John’s long history at multiple levels of the Bureau’s administration, and his economics background, will allow us to provide clients with superior advice,” said Peter Feldberg, Firm Managing Partner. “He has been an investigator, ran cases, developed policy and knows the ins and outs of the Bureau – its key people, its thinking and its approach.”

“His deep and practical knowledge of the Bureau will be a major asset for our clients on competition matters”, said Huy Do, Co-Leader of the Firm’s Antitrust/Competition & Marketing group. “He not only knows the people and history of the office, but how they approach issues and their rationale for making decisions.”

Fasken’s Antitrust/Competition and Marketing group members assist and guide clients through merger clearance and foreign investment reviews for Canadian and international M&A transactions and across all aspects of antitrust/competition and marketing law.
