Davies Ward hires new head of antitrust

George Addy is a leading name in Canadian competition, having been head of the Competition Bureau of Can-ada from 1993-96. Prior to that he spent six years as the head of the bureau's merger branch. Before returning to private practice in 2000 as a competition partner with Osler, he worked for telecoms company Telus Corporation in a senior executive role.
His extensive list of contacts was no doubt a major consideration for the firm.
“Addy brings a unique combination of experience as head of the Bureau, a private practitioner and a senior executive. It covers virtually every sector of the Canadian economy,” said managing partner William O'Reilly.
