Competition Law & Regulatory Practice

Drew & Napier's Competition Law & Regulatory Practice, established in 1999, is the oldest and largest dedicated competition law practice in Singapore.

The Competition Law Practice Group, co-headed by Cavinder Bull, SC, and Lim Chong Kin, comprises an experienced and highly qualified team who handles competition and regulatory matters both generally under the Competition Act as well as in the carved-out sectors such as telecommunications, media, energy and post.

Our Practice Group also possesses superior in-house competition economics expertise led by Deputy Head of Competition & Regulatory Practice, Scott Clements. Scott was previously a Senior Investigator at the New Zealand Commerce Commission and holds both a law degree and an economics degree, as well as a post-graduate diploma in competition economics.

We are consistently recognised as the leading competition law practice in Singapore and are the preferred counsel of local companies, multi-national corporations, associations and government bodies for competition matters in Singapore and other ASEAN member countries.

We filed the first merger notification as well as the most number of notifications for decision relating to agreements and conduct under the Competition Act. We also successfully led appeals to the Competition Appeal Board (CAB).

Since 1999, we have worked on every noteworthy competition law-related matter in the telecommunications, media and postal sectors. We are the only practice in Singapore that is regularly commissioned by the competition regulators to undertake market studies.
