Cassels Brock is pleased to announce that Imran Ahmad has joined the firm as an associate in our Competition, Antitrust & Foreign Investment Group.

Imran’s practice encompasses a wide range of competition and foreign investment matters. He regularly advises both Canadian and foreign clients engaged in mergers, joint ventures, and other forms of strategic alliances in connection with the notification and clearance provisions of the Competition Act and Investment Canada Act.

Imran advises clients in connection with conspiracy and other criminal provisions of the Competition Act, as well as on potentially anti-competitive business practises, including abuse of dominance, exclusive dealing and refusal to deal matters. He also provides advice concerning corporate competition law compliance programs, product regulation and marketing/advertising law matters.

Prior to his call to the bar, Imran was a political advisor to Lieutenant-General the Honourable Roméo A. Dallaire (Ret’d), Senator, and clerked for Justice Edmond P. Blanchard at the Federal Court of Canada and Competition Tribunal in Ottawa.

Imran sits on the board of directors of Common Ground Co-Operative, a not-for-profit organization providing business training to individuals with developmental disabilities. Additionally, he acts as legal counsel on a pro bono basis for the Child Soldier Initiative, a program housed at Dalhousie University that seeks to eliminate the use of child soldiers throughout the world.
