Competition & Regulation
Australia is governed by competition and regulation laws designed to ensure a level playing field. We advise private and public sector clients dealing with investigations and regulators in the exercising of their powers.

We have a detailed understanding of the merger clearance and authorisation rules and regularly assist clients with acquisitions of shares or assets which may raise questions of concentration of market power.
We regularly lead work with teams of forensic accountants, professional economists and other related professionals to respond to, and resolve, regulatory investigations.
