Competition Law

Norton White has extensive experience in advising on and resolving a broad range of competition law issues:

  • mergers and acquisitions
  • joint ventures
  • restrictive trade practices
  • franchising
  • essential infrastructure access rights and regimes
  • consumer protection and advertising
  • development of trade practices compliance programs and training
  • regulatory investigations and prosecutions
  • Australian Competition and Consumer Commission immunity applications

While our expertise extends to handling litigation and prosecutions, we recognise the importance of attempting to resolve regulatory issues before court proceedings are commenced.  We have a successful track record in liaising with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission to obtain regulatory clearances and resolve competition law issues without the need for litigation.
