Competition Law

Brookfields Lawyers' competition law experience includes advising on anti‑competitive risks and presenting applications for Commerce Commission clearances.

We advise businesses who wish to avoid, or are victims of, arrangements considered anti‑competitive, such as agreements to fix prices or to divide up markets. Brookfields Lawyers can assist clients with a substantial degree of market power on how to implement commercial strategies that are legally compliant.

Globally cartel investigations by regulators are increasingly common place. Recent prosecutions in this area have emphasised that the courts are taking a strong stance.

One of the most important things to do when under investigation is to seek immediate legal advice. Your level of co‑operation can be a factor if you do end up facing a prosecution. Brookfields Lawyers can assist you to understand what you need to know what you are facing before making any decisions.

We also advise clients on actions for damages and injunctions for breaches of competition and consumer protection legislation.

Brookfields Lawyers can advise you on:

  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Restrictive trade practices
  • Competition litigation
  • Market and sector investigations
