Competition/antitrust and consumer protection laws increasingly present a key business risk and a potential constraint on growth for all businesses.
Getting the right advice can be the difference between a successful outcome and uncertainty, delay, and financial and reputational exposure.
Our competition and regulatory team is regularly called upon to advise on the most complex and high-profile competition cases domestically and internationally. We offer market-leading expertise and industry knowledge across a wide range of sectors.
We act on the full range of competition law matters, including merger clearance, cartels and other investigations/litigation and infrastructure regulation. We also advise on dominance issues, joint ventures, distribution arrangements, marketing initiatives and industry regulation, working in close partnership with our clients to achieve their commercial objectives.
With broad powers and an evolving enforcement focus, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) is a well-resourced and active regulator. Our team is continually engaging with the ACCC and has long-standing relationships with key ACCC decision-makers, allowing us to anticipate potential issues.
On multi-jurisdictional mergers and investigations, our team works with leading competition/antitrust practices at a range of international firms to provide seamless global service.
