Katherine Kay is a litigation partner and head of the firm’s competition litigation practice, and a past member of the Partnership Board, Executive Committee and Toronto Management Committee. Her practice concentrates on complex commercial litigation, often involving the interplay between regulatory, civil (particularly class actions) and criminal law regimes, and in multiple jurisdictions. Areas of focus include competition, product liability, securities, corruption and other white collar cases. She is described by Chambers Global as “virtually insurmountable in the area of competition litigation” and by Global Competition Review as “arguably the best competition litigator Canada has to offer.” Katherine is known for highly effective advocacy before courts and tribunals across the country, and is a first call for “bet the farm” situations, including conducting internal investigations and advising management and boards of directors. She has multiple recognitions including: Canadian Competition Litigator of the Year (2016), The Best Lawyers in Canada; The Lexpert®/American Lawyer Guide to the Leading 500 Lawyers in Canada; Lexpert® Guide to the Leading US/Canada Cross-Border Litigation Lawyers; Chambers Global: Guide to the World’s Leading Lawyers for Business, among others.
