Rankings and recognition
McMillan is delighted to announce that Neil Campbell, the Co-Chair of its Competition and Trade groups, has been honoured with the "Dealmaker of the Year" award by Global Competition Review (GCR). This award recognizes a lawyer "whose superior knowledge, practical judgement and negotiation skills in merger clearance matters demonstrate that they are among the very best in the field."

Neil has long been recognized as a leader in the Canadian Competition bar. The award reflects his work on six high profile merger clearances over the past year.

Additionally, a McMillan team consisting of Scott Maidment, Neil Campbell and Jun Chao Meng represented one of the parties in the chocolate confectionery prosecution which won the "Behavioural Matter of the Year – Americas" Award.

McMillan was also shortlisted as a finalist for the "Litigation of the Year – Non-Cartel Defence" award for our work on the Watson v. Bank of America (credit cards) case before the British Columbia Court of Appeal. The McMillan team included David Kent, James Musgrove, and Jeffrey Simpson.

Our recognition at the 2016 GCR Awards continues a long tradition of success for our competition lawyers, including notable GCR awards in 2015 and 2014 and selection as a finalist for Chambers Canada's "Competition Group of the Year". For more than three decades, McMillan has been recognized nationally and internationally as a leader in competition law. Our cross-Canada team of lawyers in Toronto, Ottawa, Montréal, Vancouver and Calgary assists clients in obtaining approval of industry-transforming transactions and in defending cartel, class action, and unilateral conduct litigation before the competition authorities and the courts.
