Competition & Regulatory

Competition and consumer protection laws and their enforcement by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) impact many major business activities. Mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, infrastructure investments, supply and distribution arrangements and marketing initiatives may all raise competition and industry regulation issues.

Multinational businesses also need to be aware of the important differences between Australian competition and ‘antitrust’ laws and those in other jurisdictions.

Getting the right advice can make the difference between a successful deal and a considerable liability, cost or delay. We work with our clients to achieve their business goals, ensuring we minimise delays, manage associated regulatory risks, and, of course, get the deal through. We also bring our strong relationships and real insight into ACCC practices and procedures to the table.
