Gilbert + Tobin’s Competition and Regulation Group is the pre-eminent competition practice in Australia. We consistently win complex and cutting-edge work because of our track record of achieving results on high-stakes transactions and litigation for our clients.
Competition law presents a real challenge to businesses. With an Australian regime that is particularly tough, and with international laws constantly in flux, competition is an area that can expose companies to risk, particularly when it comes to cooperative conduct between competitors and potential competitors. Businesses operating in multiple jurisdictions need to stay abreast of the competition legislation not only in their home countries, but also in the countries where their affiliates are based.
