Defending Against Bid Rigging Offences
Conducting business and competing for contracts can be a complicated process. It can involve government agencies, competitors, business partners and many rules and regulations. The process can take months or even years to complete. An investigation by the Competition Bureau into your employees or your company and its business practices can jeopardize all of the hard work you have done. The investigation can take years and you may feel you don't have full control over your company's operations.
Competition Act Offences Can Affect Your Company's Ability to Conduct Business
Furthermore, being charged under the Competition Act can feel as though you have the weight of the entire government against you. These charges are often document-heavy, involving thousands of pages of materials, and a prosecution that seems to have an endless supply of resources to pursue the charges. The potential consequences for you, your business and your reputation can be significant. Even being charged can have an impact on your company's reputation and ability to continue to do business.
