Gilbert + Tobin has been recognised for its work on the global merger between Anheuser-Busch InBev NV (ABI) and SABMiller, which was awarded Matter of the Year at the 2017 Global Competition Review Awards held in Washington DC.
The multi-billion dollar transaction between the global brewing giants saw the companies merge into a sole powerhouse with an estimated 46% of global beer profits. Gilbert + Tobin’s team worked closely with Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer as global legal advisors, representing ABI in the Australian aspects of the deal. The overall team was recognised for their creative, strategic and innovative work in the transaction.
Competition + Regulation Partner Elizabeth Avery was thrilled by the recognition.
“Congratulations to all G+T team members involved. This is well-deserved recognition of excellent work and it reflects the quality and depth of our expertise in the industry.”
The Gilbert + Tobin team was led by partners Elizabeth Avery, Gina Cass-Gottlieb, Deborah Johns, Neil Pathak, Nirangjan Nagarajah, Andrew Bullock and Peter Feros. Other members included Jeremy Jose, Lena Vanmali, Andrew Low, Paul Wright, Jack Coles and Erin Jardine.
