Competition law constrains the conduct of firms with market power. It restricts their ability to merge, create joint ventures and to misuse their market power. It also prohibits particular types of agreements with their competitors and customers.
Our competition policy work
Our competition policy practice provides economic analysis, advice and litigation support on all aspects of competition policy. This includes:
- mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures
- misuse of market power
- horizontal and vertical agreements
- intellectual property
- estimations and claims for damages
- economic expert support on general commercial legal issues and disputes.
We work closely with clients and legal counsel, state and federal governments and competition authorities such as the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission and the New Zealand Commerce Commission. Our strategic advice and technical support is based on sound economics as well as empirical techniques for quantification of value.
