WeirFoulds is pleased to announce that the Kobo eBooks case has been shortlisted for the Global Competition Review’s Annual awards for “Litigation of the year – Non-cartel prosecution: Creative, strategic and innovative litigation on behalf of plaintiffs in a non-cartel private action.”
WeirFoulds acted for Kobo in bringing a precedent-setting case to set aside a Competition Bureau settlement agreement that would have a significant adverse impact on Kobo’s eBook business. Prior to this, no one had ever successfully brought such a challenge.
