Rapid assessment of risks in responding strategically to cartel investigations
Global competition regulators are increasingly coordinating the detection, investigation and prosecution of cartel conduct.
We have a strong track record of assisting our clients on all aspects of domestic and international cartel matters, from internal investigations to immunity applications, Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) investigations, civil and criminal prosecutions and follow-on actions for damages, including class actions.
You will benefit from our international network and close working relationships with other leading advisers located around the world. This strength means that we are well equipped to respond to cartel investigations launched by local Australian regulators and their offshore counterparts, and to co-ordinate our clients’ responses across all jurisdictions, including across Asia, in the UK and Europe and in the Americas.

Our lawyers are acting in the largest cartel actions, including the criminal prosecution by the ACCC of three banks and five individuals arising from an equity capital raising, and defending a global bank in cartel class action proceedings relating to FX trading.
