Gilbert + Tobin’s market-leading expertise in competition and anti-trust law has again been recognised, with Partner Gina Cass-Gottlieb taking out Dealmaker of the Year at the 2017 Lawyers Weekly Women in Law Awards.
The award reflects Gina’s reputation as the leading Competition and Anti-trust lawyer in Australia, having advised on some of the largest, most contentious and complex merger clearance matters for acquisitions and joint ventures in Australia and New Zealand.

Our Competition Team has had yet another outstanding year as the go-to competition practice for some of Australia’s biggest corporate deals and disputes and we are all very proud to see Gina take home this much-deserved honour.”
“In addition to her success leading complex and cutting-edge work, Gina continues to support and champion G+T’s commitment to increase our representation of female partners and is a fantastic role model for talented women both within our firm and the wider legal profession," added Danny.
