Competition & Antitrust
Our Competition & Antitrust team is one of the most experienced in Malaysia. We have been advising clients on various aspects of competition law, including the conduct of economic analyses, since the enactment of the Competition Act 2010.
We believe in providing our clients with bespoke solutions according to their business requirements, rather than a “one size fits all” approach.
- Antitrust complaint and investigation
We have successfully defended clients in antitrust complaints and investigations involving the Malaysia Competition Commission (“MyCC”). Our clients include multinational corporations, government-linked companies and trade associations from a range of sectors such as the financial services, automotive, pharmaceutical, heavy equipment, building materials, property development, and hospitality industries.
- Exemption and leniency applications
We have provided extensive advice and analyses in connection with exemption and leniency applications to the Malaysia Competition Commission.
- Economic analysis and market studies
We are one of the few firms in Malaysia with competition economics analysis and market study capabilities. We are supported by an experienced competition economics team that provides a full range of analyses combining economic principles and quantitative approaches.
- Competition compliance
We regularly review clients’ business practices and assess competition risks from legal and economic perspectives, whilst providing practical advice to mitigate infringement risk. We routinely advise on vertical and horizontal arrangements such as joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, distribution agreements, and other commercial strategies.
