Randall Hofley joins the Competition Bureau’s Legal Services team

News Release

January 3, 2018 – OTTAWA, ON – Competition Bureau

The Commissioner of Competition is pleased to announce that Randall Hofley, partner at Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP, will bring his experience and expertise in Canadian competition law and policy to the Competition Bureau.

As of January 2, 2018, Mr. Hofley began serving a two-year term as General Counsel and Senior Enforcement Advisor with the Department of Justice at the Competition Bureau Legal Services (CBLS) under the Interchange Canada program.

Mr. Hofley’s term marks a return to the Bureau, as he served as Special Counsel to the Commissioner of Competition in 2005 and 2006. Over his notable 25-plus year career, Mr. Hofley has also advised on major competition law and policy-related matters, and litigated a number of such matters before the Competition Tribunal, other federal administrative tribunals, Provincial Superior Courts, the Federal Courts and the Supreme Court of Canada.

Through the Canada Interchange Program, the Bureau benefits from the knowledge and experience of talented individuals who, in return, gain professional development from their involvement in the Bureau’s work. This program also promotes dialogue and collaboration with the Canadian Competition law community.
