Rogers Communications–Shaw Communications merger

Shaw Communications, Inc. retained Paul Johnson, a former Bates White Partner supported by firm economists, to analyze its potential $26 billion merger with Rogers Communications, Inc. Shaw and Rogers are two Canadian telecommunications companies whose merger the Canadian Competition Bureau sought to block. Dr. Johnson, former Competition Bureau Chief Economist, submitted two expert reports and testified before the Competition Tribunal in November 2022, addressing the competitive significance of Shaw’s recently launched wireless brand, Shaw Mobile. Dr. Johnson testified that the Bureau’s expert failed to provide evidence that the Shaw Mobile launch increased competition. The Tribunal ruled in favor of the merging parties.
