WeirFoulds is pleased to announce that the firm's competition practice has been recommended  in this year's Global Competition Review's GCR 100.

The firm is a new entrant in the GCR 100, a comprehensive listing of the world's top competition practices.

The publication describes Nikiforos Iatrou, Competition Practice Group Chair, as a "a favourite among Toronto's competition bar" who "spearheads the fast-maturing competition group at WeirFoulds".

"A litigator by training, Iatrou was counsel to the commissioner during a three-year stint at the Competition Bureau before launching WeirFoulds' competition group in 2012. …He says practising at a medium-sized firm gives him the flexibility to act for small and large clients alike, and take on riskier, novel cases. Iatrou is perhaps best known for his representation of Kobo in the ebook retailer's successful challenge to the bureau's settlements..."

The GCR 100 provides a quantitative and qualitative analysis of law firms and economic consultancies doing the most important antitrust work around the world.
