Our Competition & Antitrust practice is one of the largest and most established in Singapore. A unique feature of our team is that our members practise antitrust law full-time. They include competition lawyers, competition economists and former officers of the Competition Commission of Singapore (CCS). Since its inception, our practice has been at the forefront in terms of securing favourable decisions from CCS.
 
A market leader in the field of merger control, we have advised on the majority of all public decisions issued by CCS since the Competition Act was enacted, including overturning its first provisional decision to block a merger. Our team also specialises in regulated competition sectors. We were the commissioned draftsman for the Media Market Conduct Code review and the merger framework of the Singapore Airport Competition Code. Our track record includes landmark matters in the gas, electricity, postal and telecommunications sectors.

For contentious antitrust work, we have successfully represented clients in complex international cartel and monopoly investigations, including the first CCS’ global cartel decision and the first dominance appeal to the Competition Appeal Board. Our practice also has significant experience in cross-border antitrust advice, especially in the ASEAN region.
